Sean 2nd in inter boys Leinster schools today
We had a decent day at the Leinster schools in Santry today. Connor came 32nd in the minor boys race and his team from St Declans didn’t make it to Nationals. In the junior girls race Clare o Connor came 13th in a very competitive team race the St Dominics team did their best but missed out on Nationals. A very high quality inter girls race was dominated by Loreto Kilkenny and the St Dominics team Gillian, Clare, Sara and Cliodhna came 3rd. Sean Donoghue returned to racing with a fine 2nd place in the inter boys race. Dora, Emily, Celine and Keelin came 2nd team in the senior girls race for St Dominics. Well done everyone.
