All Ireland Day 2 Sunday December 15th Dunlavin
Sunday next will be the final cross country race of the season when the uneven ages will be staged in Dunlavin. This is a new venue for us but we expect the terrain to be similar to the Friary. Most of our athletes are travelling the day before and the rooms are booked in City West Hotel, leaving us just a short journey to Dunlavin on Sunday morning. There is no bus so everyone is travelling by car. Following the championships we will stop in the Newpark in Kilkenny for our now traditional post All Ireland meal. If any of the parents are dining with us please give your names to Mary or Antoinette at training this week.
