2019 European Cross Country

Last Sunday, a large contingent of athletes representing Ireland travelled to the European Cross Country Championships in Lisbon. Amongst the party of athletes were four from county Kilkenny – all from the Kilkenny City Harriers Athletic club in the city. These four athletes; Shay McEvoy, Peter Lynch, Aoibhe Richardson and Eoin Everard, competed with distinction and brought honour to their club, county and Ireland itself.

Accompanying the Irish team in the capacity of team manager for the u23 teams was Niamh Richardson. Niamh herself was a former Irish International Cross Country runner, competing at this level for a number of years. It is something that the athletes can benefit from, having a manager who understands the game of athletics from an athletes perspective, their fears, expectations and needs on race day.

Aoibhe Richardson was part of the Irish Senior Ladies team that secured the silver team medal.
