Irish Universities Cross Country 2018

Among the victorious DCU men’s team – Oisin Quinn (5th from right), Padraig Moran (4th from right), Cormac Dalton (3rd from right), Michael Moran (2nd from right)

The Irish Universities Cross Country hosted this year by Trinity College Dublin took place on Saturday 10th March at the Santry Playing Fields on Santry Avenue where underfoot conditions were very soft but the cool dry weather conditions were good for the spectators. Elizabeth Carr (running one year down for DCU) in 5th place was the second scorer on the gold medal winning DCU team in the women’s race. The DCU team included Claire Fagan (11th) and Laura Whitelaw (17th), so congratulations to them too. DCU also won the men’s race, led home by Padraig Moran (6th), with great team running and support from Cormac Dalton (10th) making a great comeback after too long out of action with injury, and Oisin Quinn and Michael Moran. No surprise that DCU was also the best College overall on the day.
