All Ireland Schools Cross Country
On Saturday 9th March, Lydia Walshe (pictured right) competed in the All Ireland Schools Cross Country Championships in Clongowes Wood College, Clane Co. Kildare.
Lydia is the first ever female GCC student to qualify for this event. The standard was very high, and she did a great job in securing herself a position in the final. It was a tough day for running out there with very strong winds and a strong field of athletes. Lydia did herself proud and finished in 50th position in a very competitive race. Exciting things to come for this young lady. (L. Hegarty)
