This Sunday the biggest event on the cross country calendar takes place in Abbotstown. The National Cross Country Championships is the place where every top distance athlete from across the country comes to try claim the title of National Cross Country Champion and every club team fights for the team title. DSD has had a great history at these events including on 2 occasions where we managed to sweep up all 4 team titles. This year we have great strength in depth with complete teams across both Junior and Senior. These races also serves as a selection for the European Championships in December and for the European clubs competition in February so there is a lot up for grabs for these teams. Bring your wellies, coats, scarves and gloves and come out to support our Senior and Junior club athletes as they battle with the best in the country to be able to take those National titles home to DSD once more!!! The action kicks off with the Junior women at 1pm in Abootstown Senior Women Meghan Ryan Maria McCambridge Sarah Mulligan Fiona Clinton Bethanie Murray Linda Byrne Niamh Devlin Senior Men Joe Sweeney Robert Corbally Patrick MacGabhann Jack MacGabhann Mark Molloy Killian Mooney Matt Bergin John Eves Sam Knee-Robinson Junior Women Abbi Taylor Grace Dervan Roseanne McCollough Sadhbh O’Loan Jodi McCann Niamh Carey Lucy McCann Aisling King Junior Men Paul O’Donnell Luke McCann Christian McKenna Ruadhann O’Grada Conor Halpin Aaron Donnelly Luke MacGabhann Roly Mossop Ross O’Toole Nathan Doyle
