Ireland 3rd at JHI!
For the 2nd year in a row the Irish Juniors outran the Welsh to take the Judith Wingham Trophy at the JHI, held in Gortalughany & Necarne in Fermanagh.
England dominated both relay and individual competitions. Points after the Individual races (run in conjunction with the Northern Irish Champs) were England 80, Scotland 51, Ireland 44, Wales 41. Scotland pulled ahead in the Relays but the Irish juniors ran consistently, with some sparkling performances, to increase their lead over Wales.

As well as plenty of solid results there were 4 Irish prizewinners – Jack Millar (M18) & Caoimhe O’Boyle (W14) both 2nd in their classes, and Aine McCann & Niamh Corbett 3rd in W18 and W16 respectively.
