Super Hugh Man

Hugh in full flight

De LaSalle athlete Hugh Morgan who does his club running with St Senans AC, put in superb performances at the All Ireland Schools Cross Country championships in Abbotstown recently to win gold in the junior boy’s race. Hugh was with the large leading group up to the final lap, when a smaller group broke clear and with 800m to go Hugh put in a blistering sprint to win by 30m. Hugh who took the Munster Schools title a few weeks ago has been in superb form and has all the talent and determination to make it at the top level.

Oliver Mullally of Abbey College also had a fine run.

St Senans AC had several other athletes in action for their schools in Abbotstown and Bronagh Kearns, Aine Kinsella and Maggie Delahunty had excellent runs for the Abbey Community College Team in the Intermediate Girls race.

 Thomastown athletes Megan Morrissey had another fine race finishing just ahead of Bronagh, while Maeve O Connor was well placed in the same race. Aoife O’Connor was well placed in senior race with a strong individual performance.

Among the interested spectators was Olympian Eamonn Coughlan, who was delighted to pose with the Kilkenny athletes, giving them a memorable photo for their scrapbooks.
