Double National Titles for Finn Valley AC


Finn Valley AC made the journey to Waterford to challenge for medals in the National Underage Development Cross Country. On the day, Valley fielded two teams, u 11 girls and u 17 boys, both of which posted memorable performances, taking their respective team titles

U 17 Boys

The u 17 boys were led home in impressive fashion by Ben Carr, the individual winner, supported by teammates Lee Walsh, Karol mc Ginley, Donnachaidh Parkinson, Pauric Mc Kelvey, Oran O’Donnell and Adam Mc Granaghan. This continues a period of success for their coach, Castlefinn man Peader Mc Granaghan

U 11 Girls

There was a win earlier for the Valley u 11 Girls, led home by Glenswilly girl Sarah Mc Ginley, supported by Katie Dowds, Sara Conaghan, Leah Mc Gonagle and Sara Alexander who are coached by Rosemary Finn.  All in all, a worthwhile outing for both squads that will encourage them for the year ahead.
