2021 Leinster Evens and Novice Xcountry

23 October, 2021 Mountain View

The Leinster Juvenile even ages, Junior and Novice Championships was held at the beautiful venue of Mountain View Kiltoran last Saturday. Hosted by St Senans AC, spectators, athletes and officials deemed it an unequivocal success. Set amid the rolling hills of South Kilkenny, the former golf course provided not only spectacular views but also the perfect cross country terrain. At times the incremental weather attempted to mar the day, however, intermittent sunshine provided the perfect relief. The event was picked up by St Senans AC, 10 days prior to the scheduled date as another Leinster clubs venue failed to materialize, leaving Leinster Athletics in a conundrum. Bea and Teddy O’Neill the owners of Mountain View were without doubt a contribution to the success of the day. From the fabulous food in the Cow Shed restaurant, to facilitating every angle of the event on their premises, despite running a business their already. St Senans AC and Athletics Leinster could not wish for better people to work with.

The host club had an army of 56 helpers, drawn from parents and committee members, all of whom did their part to make the event run as successfully as it did. Team work is what makes an event possible and last Sunday was definitely a St Senans team effort.
