Congratulations to Cormac Dalton as he embarks on the next chapter of his athletics career! Cormac will join the Division 1 College University of Tulsa in August to complete a master’s degree following the completion of his undergraduate degree at DCU. Cormac will be a key contributor to the Tulsa team and he also brings excellent leadership qualities, as was highlighted by his selection as the DCU athletics club men’s captain this year.
Over the past two years Cormac has established himself as one of Ireland’s leading endurance athletes, finishing fifth at the National Senior Cross Country and representing Ireland at the European u/23 Cross Country Championships in Lisbon in December 2019. He has enjoyed great success in the sport to date, winning his first All-Ireland title as an u/12 on the track before gaining schools cross country internationals at Junior & Intermediate age groups. His International debut came way back in March 2013 at the Schools Cross Country International in Wales as part of the silver medal winning Ireland team in the Junior boys race. Fast forwarding to the present, it’s great to see Cormac has successfully made the transition from underage success to senior success and is still representing Ireland in International competition.
Cormac is an excellent example to the younger athletes in Mullingar Harriers and his successes to date are a combination of his ability, work ethic and great dedication to the sport. We wish him every success stateside.
