European XC selection for Cormac Dalton (22nd Nov)
International selection for Cormac Dalton
Congratulations to Cormac Dalton on being named on the Irish senior men team to compete at the European Cross Country in Dublin on 12th December. The National Senior Cross Country on 21st November was the trial for the Europeans but only guaranteed the first three finishers a place on the team, with the selectors free to consider three others, such as US based student-athletes like Cormac, who secured his place on the team thanks to a magnificent showing in the NCAA Cross Country Championship in Florida only days before.
Cormac made his debut in a Major Championship at the corresponding event in Lisbon in 2019 when he competed on the u/23 team, finishing in an excellent 49th place, the fourth finisher for Ireland to help the team to a very creditable 7th place. He can draw on that invaluable experience this year and everyone at Mullingar Harriers wishes him the very best of luck.
