CONGRATULATIONS to the evergreen Pauric McKinney who finished second in the National Masters Cross Country Championships at ASLAA in Dublin on Sunday. Pauric, finished behind Pauric Matthews over the gruelling course which was very heavy underfoot after previous races.
“I’m thrilled to be up there again after the Northern Ireland Masters,” a delighted Pauric said.
Pauric, the Donegal king of Cross Country for as long as one can remember, showed his class once again and done himself and the club proud.
He was joined in the team by our own Ciaran O’Donnell and Richard Raymond.
“It was tough out there. The course was flat but really heavy-energy sapping underfoot,” Richie said afterwards.
In the Intermediate event the club was well represented by Kevin Ferry, Paul McGlinchey, Barry Meehan and Aidan McKenna. They battled away over the 7k race and done well.
In the Masters Ladies, Pat McKenna was flying the club colours and once again showed fine improving form.

The club wish him well as he prepares to compete in the Odyssey alongside the other Letterkenny ac athletes.
