There were some fantastic individual and team performances by BARRS athletes in today’s All Ireland Intermediate & Masters Cross Country at Dundalk I.T. Conditions were very difficult with huge crowds running in what was a mud bath but the BARRS turned out in great numbers and performed brilliantly.
Our O35 Women’s team (Ann-Marie Healy, Gillian Cotter, Margo Dinan, Karina Teahan and Denise Twohig) achieved a very creditable 4th place just 12 pts behind the bronze medal winners. Individually, Karina Teahan was 2nd at F35 after a fantastic run that saw her finish 6th overall.
Our O35 Men finished 3rd with John Meade, Con Marshall, Rory O Sullivan and Joe Cunningham all scoring. John, Con and Rory also scored for the Cork team that finished 2nd. Our O50 Men’s team finished 9th with Eamonn McEvoy, Willie Hayes, Tony O’Brien and Eddie Barry all scoring. Individually John Meade was 6th at M35 and Rory O Sullivan 9th. Con Marshall was 9th at M40 with Eamonn McEvoy 4th at M60.
In the Women’s Intermediate race, the BARRS were 7th with Catriona Santry, Anita Murphy, Irene Eighan and Lorraine O’Sullivan all scoring. Catriona Santry also scored for the Cork Intermediate team that finished 2nd!
Well done to the BARRS athletes who travelled all the way to Dundalk and performed so well!
