The Gym in The Watershed proved the ideal venue for the welcome home reception for our galant representatives at Sunday’s Eurocross Championships in Lisbon. Club Chairman, John Maye, welcomed the athletes – Shay Mc Evoy (U20), Peter Lynch (U23), Eoin Everard (Senior), Aoife Richardson (Senior and silver medal winner) and Niamh Richardson (Manager U23 Ladies silver medal winning team), all club members (juvenile and senior), parents, relations, friends and members of the media. Presentations were made to the athletes and team manager. The Eurocross athletes in turn presented cross country medals to all juvenile members who competed for the club in this year’s championships. The chairman having thanked all involved in bringing the athletes to this level, expressed the hope of the juveniles present going on to emulate these high achievers. He also thanked the Watershed for making the hall available for the occassion. The evening concluded with distribution of selection boxes to all juveniles present.
