National Cross Country Finals: Click here to see some photos of Moyne Athletic Club members competing at the 2012 All Ireland Cross Country in Rathoath.
Tattersalls, Rathoath, Co Meath was the venue on Sunday last for the AAI Cross Country National Championships where we had 2 athletes competing; both girls were members of the Munster Team in the U12 2000m.
Rachel Butler put in an astonishing and brilliant performance to claim 4th place overall and lead the Munster Team to Silver Medals, it must be noted that Rachel was running out of her age and also has the U11 National Finals to look forward to in two weeks time. This was a performance of sheer class and I’m quite sure that this will be the first of many National Individual medals for Rachel – well done on a fantastic performance.
Niamh Ryan also put in a strong performance finishing 33rd after a determined run over this very heavy and wet course – well done to both Rachel & Niamh on making the Finals and representing their Club, County and Province in style.
