Six pupils, 2 members of staff and 1 parent went to Cork City Sports on 1st June. It was a day of persistent, pouring rain and cold temperatures with it. Cork’s local radios was giving warnings about weather, traffic and parking all morning. There were 10,000 people/children expected on the day.
The boys (Harry, Joshua and Calum) were racing in the morning and our group was on at 12:10pm. They ran excellent races against tough competition and we won a second place with Calum. But all the boys deserve praise for running their hearts out on such a cold and miserable day.
The girls ran in the afternoon and the rain did not give up falling. Again we had strong, brave runners giving it their best and we got a first with Vicki. She then had to run in the county quarter finals a little later in the afternoon and came a very close second achieving a place in the county finals.
Then there was a two hour wait for the finals and she ran her best, unfortunately she was beaten by some stronger runners on the day. There is always another day ……….. for our brave girls and boys.
We would also like to thank Ann for giving us three training sessions, without her guidance we wouldn’t have got the trophies that we did. We would also like to thank Ahiohill Football Pitch for allowing us to train on their pitch.
Well done all
