lOn Wednesday 33 pupils from Kilkishen N.S. took part in the Clare Schools Cross Country Athletics event held at Lee's Road in Ennis. In terrible conditions, Kilkishen N.S. had some superb performances and returned with a number of medals. In each race the top 12 finishers received medals and qualify for the County Cross Country Finals to be held this term.
Seán Boyce finished in 4th place in the U/10 Boys race and his team mates Callum Casey, Martin Bon, Seán Ryan, Kyle Tuohy and Zak McInerney all performed very well. In the Girls O/10 race Chelsea Canny finished in 4th place also with Julie Murphy finishing 11th and Abby Heffernan in 20th position. The team won Bronze medals and will compete again at the County event.
The highlight of the event came in the final race of the day, the Boys O/10 race. Darragh Moroney put in a superb performance to cross the finish line just ahead of the runner-up and win Gold for Kilkishen. Darragh heads to the County Finals with great confidence after this superb performance.
Thank you to Martina O'Hagan, Richard Greaves, Edel McInerney and all parents that helped out on the day. Despite the weather it was a great day for the pupils involved.
Show Respect and Expect Respect.
