Juniors and Seniors Go Cross Country

Mr. Shay Keenan does not do things by halves: when he heard about the happy coincidence that there would be both junior and senior Cross Country race at Morton Stadium in Santry, he hired a bus and welcomed all comers!  ‘The more, the merrier’ is the St. Conleth’s sporting philosophy and so it should be, as participation is the name of the game at our school and we make sure that no-one is ever left out.  We did worry a bit for Mr. Keenan’s personal safety (and sanity), as filling a bus with Juniors and then throwing in a bunch of First Years at their seasonal hyperactive peak is the not the recipe for a morning ‘milk run’ but Shay is an old hand at these things and bringing along a sprinkling of seasoned, responsible hands such as Rory Sweeney and Tony Barry was just the ticket.  As you can see form our pics below, everyone had a great time (free T-shirts always help) and completed the race in very good times.  There will be more races ahead and remember that for First- Third Years, we have a special training arrangement with Crusaders AC.   Keep running!
