Athletes brave muddy course


MILLSTREET athletes braved terrible weather conditions at Castlelyons to compete at the Munster Cross Country Championships.

It was a true test to their ability as the heavy rain never let up and the course was completely covered with mud, making it really hard to get going.

Donal Bourke ran an outstanding race to qualify for the All-Ireland Championships in Waterford next month. All involved with Millstreet AC are very proud of Donal to be wearing the Millstreet AC singlet at such a high level.

The club was also represented at Castlelyons by Emily Ring, Sarah Bourke, Orla Buckley, Ian Buckley, Daniel Buckley, James Buckley, Ian Buckley and Eanna O'Mahony. While they didn't bring home any medals they will all go forward to running in the Munster "B" Championship at Beaufort on Sunday, December 1.
