South Tipperary Cross Country

Well done to all the senior room who participated in the South Tipperary schools cross country in Marlfield on October 26th. The weather was very kind to us, but the ground was very mucky in places. Zoe Thompson came in 4th place and led the 3rd and 4th class girls to the bronze medal. Tristan Bryne did well to come 6th place in a very competitive 3rd and 4th class boys race. Aobhnait Ryan and Ruby Holohan ran brilliantly to come in the top 25. Ewan Byrne finished in 2nd place leading the boys 5th and 6th class to 5th place in the team section.
