The Tipperary Cross Country Championships took place in Thurles Croke’s AC on Thursday 27th November. Conditions for the racing were perfect despite the early morning heavy showers that had fallen on the track. Loreto was represented by a team of ten athletes who took part in the Minor, Junior and Intermediate categories.

With conditions firm underfoot and a flat course, the race times were fast. In the Minor race,  Ruby, Erin & Robyn  ran a strong race to claim the bronze team award. At Junior level, we again had a very competitive team, with Muireann finishing  in 4th followed closely by Saoirse & Ellen to claim a silver team placing. At Intermediate level Celine, Bríd & Róise competed very well to also claim a silver team award.

Well done to the girls who will now look forward to competing in the East Munster Championships after Christmas.
