|Gerry Brady||Jul 4, 10:17am||Four Irish teams will compete in the 11th European Athletics mountain running championships in Denizli-Pamukkale in Turkey this Saturday. Brian MacMahon (Clonliffe) and Sarah McCormack (Clonliffe) head up the senior teams and both will be looking for a top 12-15 placing. Raheny will be represented by Ian Conroy and Fiona Roche so that the North Dublin rivalry will continue even in faraway places!|
Clare McCarthy (DSD) should be our top junior woman and she could make the top 10 and lead the team to a top six placing. Jake O’Regan (St. John’s Clare) leads a similarly well-balanced junior men’s team that could finish in the top eight teams.
Senior men: Ian Conroy (Raheny Shamrock); James Kevan (Clonliffe); Brian MacMahon (Clonliffe); Tom Hogan (Racing 795)
Senior women: Sarah McCormack (Clonliffe); Sarah Mulligan (DSD); Fiona Roche (Raheny)
Junior men: Hugh Armstrong (Ballina); Andrew Cullen (DSD); Killian O’Connor (Sligo); Jake O’Regan (St. John’s Clare)
Junior women: Louise Hill-Stirling (Clonliffe); Clare McCarthy (DSD); Sarah Miles (DSD)

Every place counts!
|Jonathan McCloy||Jul 5, 8:01am||Good luck to the teams!|
Interesting that there is an unfilled space in the womens team and the absence of some big names in Irish womens mountain running...

|Jeff Fitzsimons||Jul 5, 9:30am||Hope everyone runs to their potential, and gets the rub of the green as well!|
