Adamstown county Wexford was the location for this years Leinster Novice on October 25th. A flat dry course made the job ahead look easy but a strong head wind meant it was slower going than in Dublin two weeks earlier.

Some great individual performances. Paul Duffy coming in 18th getting the first cross country mens medal of the season on the Dublin team. Barbara Coming in with ten minutes to spare to complete the women’s team and Helen finishing an incredible 4th after a sprint finish.

Some great support around the course from the Brady’s, runners and Emily

With the marathon over and the senior and intermediates coming up in the next few weeks, lets hope we can get some experienced cross country runners back in the fold.
