Three north west athletes have been included on the Ireland team for next months European Cross Country Championships in Italy.
Letterkenny AC’S Ann Marie McGlynn and Finn Valley’s Roisin Flanagan have been named on the senior women’s team and Finn Valley’s Sean McGinley has been included on the U20 men’s for the championships in Turin on 11th December.
McGlynn’s place was secured by her fourth place finish at the National’s in Downings just last Sunday while Flanagan’s form in America where she ran a new county 5k record was good enough to gain a spot on the team which will be lead out by Ciara Mageen.
Sean McGinley was sixth last weekend in Downings and that was also good enough to get him a place.
Sunday’s national senior champions Sarah Healy (UCD AC) and Darragh McElhinney will lead the charge for the Irish U23 teams.
Letterkenny AC’s Teresa McDaid will be on TeamManagement for Italy.
At last years European’s, Ireland claim 3 medals, 2 team and 1 individual, and was topped off with team gold in the men’s Under-23 race.
