International Selection for Mullingar Quintet (21st Oct)

 

International Selection for Mullingar Quintet

As reported, the Mullingar masters were in sparkling form at the AAI Autumn Open Cross Country and as a result five of them, including three who will make their International debuts, have been selected on the Irish Masters team to compete against their Northern Ireland counterparts at the Queen’s University Belfast Playing Fields on 13th November. Selected are Sinead Whitelaw, Brigid McCabe, Maura Dervin, Nicky McCabe and Sean McMullin. We could even consider it six if we include Pat Muldoon senior, as he is the reserve in his master category.

Brigid, Sean (and Pat) have represented Ireland before, but for Sinead, Maura and Nicky, this will be their International debuts, which is a great honour for them, their families, and of course for the Club.

We already have a number of siblings on our record of International athletes, and some mother/son, father/son, father/daughter and even aunt/nephew combinations, but Nicky and Brigid are the first husband and wife from Mullingar Harriers to run for Ireland. Congratulations to Sinead, Maura, Brigid, Nicky and Sean from everyone at the Club.
