Stop the Press

I have recieved word along the pipeline that CNOC have 2 new Irish Champions.

Caoimhe O'Boyle coasted to victory by a little over 4mins in the All Ireland Schools Championships in Donadea. In the competition, Caoimhe was running for Newbridge College in the Girls 1st Year Class.

In the Senior classes, Deirdre Ryan won the Post Junior Cert (or InterCert for the +35's) Girls race by more than 7mins. Dee was running for Gaelcholaiste Chill Dara.

CNOC's third runner was Brian Hill (Patrician Sec School, Newbridge), he couldn't live with the high standards that the girls set but still came home in a podium position, finishing 3rd in the Post JC Boys race. Brian was down by 2:11 from fellow Irish Squad member James Griffin from Midlenton CBS.

All in all it was a good warm up session for CNOC's School runners.

The next challenge is Scarr this Sunday!
Parking is at Glenmacnass waterfall.
Full details here.

If anyone has any photos or stories on CNOC related outdoor adventures, send them on.
