Douglas athletes were to the fore at the recent Cork County Junior (u20)
Cross-Country Championships in Carrignavar. The team was led home by Richard
Quirke in 7th place, continuing his very impressive form this season. Other
team members to run well were Eric Murphy, Matthew Murphy, John Kidney and
Craig Harrington.

The team dominated the race and finished in 1st place.
Craig Murphy competed in Tilburg in Holland last weekend against many of
Europe’s top Junior (u20) athletes. This was a big international meet and
Craig travelled as part of the Irish Junior team. He finished a fantastic
19th out of 100 competitors and he also has two more years in this
age-group. Very impressive running from this very talented athlete.
