Irish Health Life Munster Schools Cross Country.
The next round of the schools cross country championships will be held on Friday next February 23rd in Carriganore with the first race at 12.30. All those competing for the local schools have qualified from the East Munster and on Friday they will come up against the best of South Munster and North Munster. The first 15 finishers in each race and the top three teams in each race will qualify for the Irish Life Health All Ireland Schools Championships which will also be held in Carriganore on Saturday March 10th.  The Ardscoil inter girl’s team and St Augustine’s senior boys and inter boys teams who were all winners in East Munster will spearhead the local challenge on Friday but they will face a tough task as the intermediate grade is always the most competitive in the schools events.  Niall Blackwell and Oisin O’Riordan both representing CBS will look to qualify as individuals in the Senior and Intermediate boys events.  Tommy and Rory Fennell will be up with the action in the Minor boy’s race and could help the St Augustine’s team to qualify in this event. The Ardscoil junior girls were also in the medals at East Munster and will be competing in their first Munster finals and will be part of a very strong east Munster contingent in this race. The St Augustine’s inter girls team were not far behind the Ardscoil in the East Munster race and will be looking to close the gap on the Ardscoil on Friday. Best wishes to all the West Waterford athletes competing on Friday in Carriganore and in Nenagh on Saturday.
