Leinster Intermediate Results – Sunday 11th Jan 2007
Leinster Intermediate Cross Country Championships were run over a gently undulating 2KM course in Abbeyleix. There were hills galore on every lap, but these seemed manageable to anyone who tackled the “hill of death” at the Leinster Novice Championships in Avondale 2 weeks previously!
The Girls’ team was made up of Sarah McAteer, Orlagh Fleming, Helen Dixon and Clare O’Reilly. They all finished closely together, which was a great team effort in a race dominated by local clubs.
Eanna Cunanne led home the Dublin team to a team gold in the men’s event, and also got the individual silver medal (having been narrowly beaten in a sprint finish by Ger Clancy of DMP). Ronan narrowly missed a team gold, and with him and Ed both putting in strong runs, we were unlucky not to have had a full team, as we would have got bronze medals in the team event!
