Masters Cross Country Charge in Waterford

The Irish Life Health National Masters and Juvenile B Cross Country Championships rounds out the main club season over the terrain in Waterford I.T. this Sunday (February 12).

Sara Doohan (Corran)  is one of the leading entrants in the women’s O35 category with Sportsworld among the leading teams as they bid to stay on top of the overall club cross country league this weekend.

Rosaleen McKeown (Leevale) and Niamh Fitzgerald (Lucan Harriers) are among those listed in the F40 category while Carmel Crowley (Bandon) will be looking to excel in the F45 section. Other strong contenders in the F45 are Annette Kealy (Raheny Shamrock), Donna Mahon (Rathfarnham WSAF) and Pauline Curley (Tullamore Harriers).

Niamh O’Sullivan (An Riocht) has been carving out a name as a coach in recent times with the successes of her star pupil Shona Heaslip but she will be a force to be reckoned with in the F50. Carmel Parnell (Leevale) will look to continue her dominance in the F60 section.

Michael Harty leads a strong East Cork team in the men’s O35 age group where Brian Maher (Kilkenny City Harriers) will be the strong favourite to be first across the line. Paul Fleming (Rathfarnham) is down for the M40 and could spring a surprise in good running conditions.

Peter Mathews (DSD) will have no concerns with the surface in the M45 section. The DSD man famously won the national senior cross country title in ALSAA in 2002 in a mud bath against Seamus Power with the image making front page news.

Pauric McKinney (Inishowen) and Mick Traynor (Raheny Shamrock) are among those listed in the M50. Tom O’Connor (Liffey Valley) is among the M55 field while Martin McEvilly (Galway City Harriers) will be a leading contender in the M65. Regulars Terry Mee (Donore Harriers) and Pat Bonass (Clonliffe Harriers) will be among the ranks in the M70 section.

The Juveniles will get the action underway with the U11 girls 1,000m at 11:30am.
