The primary schools cross country competition took place last Friday the 15th March in Fr Murphys AC, Athboy @ 11am. This competition has grown in popularity over the years with this year having over 600 children participating and 20 primary schools involved. The standard of competition has improved also and with each year the overall standard within schools is improving. There was one quick shower at the start of the day other than that we were blessed with the weather.
