The cross-country season continued on Sunday, in glorious sunshine in Abbeyleix.

Hosted by Ballyroan-Abbeyleix District, participants and spectators thoroughly enjoyed the 12 race programme, and also enjoyed the refreshments provided by the committee.

This programme was the odd-ages for Juveniles – U-9 up to U-17, and the adult races were the Novice Ladies and Novice Men

There were some fine individual performances, with all clubs have their share of medal winners on the podium.

The team categories were also hard fought for, and these results were dominated by St Abban’s, and also Oughaval AC.
