GLENSWILLY teenager Sean McGinley finished fourth at the Stirling Celtic & Home International Cross Country this afternoon.
McGinley was the best placed of the local athletes who took part in testing conditions in Scotland.
Competing in the men’s Under-17 race, McGinley finished in fourth spot, while Oisin Toye of Finn Valley AC was 16th in the same race.
Patsy McGonagle, the former Irish Athletics Team manager, hailed McGinley’s display.
“It was a really good quality field,” McGonagle said. “Shaun didn’t back off and he was in a good position throughout.
“This was possibly his best ever cross-country race. Shaun was just a second off an individual medal so it was a really strong performance.”
Amy Greene from Rosses AC was eighth in the women’s Under-17s, while Nuala Bose finished 24th in the same race.
Inishowen AC’s Sarah Kelly was 53rd in the women’s Under-23 race while Eoin Hughes from Letterkenny AC was 90th in the men’s Under-23s.
The event was shown live on BBC Scotland.Tags:
