Silver Quinn See’s Women To Gold

Zoey Quinn secured Dublin intermediate silver and led the women’s team to intermediate gold in Tymon Park.

Quinn was just seven seconds behind Sportsworld Kate Kelly as she secured the silver medal a sizable 17 seconds ahead of Crusaders Niamh Corby.

Women’s captain Orla Manley produced an inspiring run to finish in fifth place with Blaithin Shiel eighth just one place ahead of Laura Brennan.

Those four gave the team a total score of 24 points some 15 points clear of Sportsworld with Rathfarnham WSAF taking bronze.

Not to be forgotten was a strong run from Aine Crimin in 22nd place, highlighted the talent available to our club captains.

Another very good result from Orla Manley’s team, the club’s women’s obviously determined not to let the men’s cross country team write all the news.

The intermediate men’s team took inspiration from the earlier efforts of the women’s team with the men landing intermediate silver.

David Kirwan was first home for the Shamrock’s in sixth position, followed by 12th place Graham O’Dwyer with Robert Frewen 13th and Ian McConkey 17th.

That total gave the Shamrock’s 48 points and silver medals, just three points behind Clonliffe Harriers with Rathfarnham WSAF a further 18 points adrift in third place.

Club stalwart Seanie Honan finished in 57th place in the men’s race.

A very good day indeed in Tymon Park with both teams posing for a picture!
