Ballinasloe and Craughwell schools took centre stage at the weekend at Beleek Castle in Ballina where the finals of the Connacht Primary Schools Cross-Country took place.

Schools from the two areas won the team gold in 3 of the 4 races and silver in the 4th race, with Craughwell NS taking the gold in the 3rd/4th class girls 800m and 5th/6th class girls 1000m and Creagh NS (Ballinasloe) taking gold in the 3rd/4th class boys 800m and silver in the 5th/6th class boys 1000m. Creagh NS repeated this feat in the individual medals, with Conor Payne taking gold in the 800m and Eoin McCormack silver in the 1000m. Scoil Uí Cheithearnaigh (Ballinasloe) also got into the individual medals with double glory for the Burke twins Michelle and Veronica who took the individual silver and bronze medals in the 3rd/4th class 800m.


Linda Porter from Ballymana NS (Craughwell) added to the haul for Craughwell schools by taking the individual silver in the 5th/6th class 1000m. Evan O'Ceallaigh from Scoil Caitriona (Renmore) completed the individual medals for local schools by taking the silver medal in the 3rd/4th class boys 800m, with Padraic Hannon (Carrabane NS) very unlucky to be pipped on the line for bronze and finishing in 4th place.
