On 22nd January Avril Deegan travelled to Cardiff, Wales to represent Ireland in the Celtic International Cross Country. Avril ran on the U20 squad and was placed 18th overall in a fast competitive field. Avril was happy with the fantastic experience of running on an Irish squad against top-class international runners.
Avril also had a very successful day last weekend in Athlone International Arena in the All Ireland Junior Indoor Track Championship. Avril won gold in the 1500m and bronze in the 800m final. A fantastic achievement taking home two All Ireland medals on the same day. The Schools Cross-Country is the next challenge for Avril and we wish her every continued success.
