Cross country training continues at the community field in Crossabeg every Monday and Thursday evening from 7-8 p.m. for members of St. Killians club. New members are always welcome. The County AA1 committee have decided that unless they have a commitment to compete from the athletes who qualifed for the Leinsters in Mullingar, they will not be entering teams. This year the County can enter 15 athletes in each age group, so all who qualifed in Adamstown should contact the secretary and let her know if they are travelling. CROSS-COUNTRY

Congratulations to James Cloney, St. Killians AC Secretary, and top club athlete, on winning the county Intermediate cross-country title on Sunday last. In both the novice race (which he won on Sunday week last) and todays race, he was a runaway winner and is now looking forward to the Leinster Championships which will be held at Belvedere, near Mullingar in two weeks time.

Cian Kinlough was also a gold medal winner for the club when he ran a very intellegent race in the juvenile section, when he went to the front with two hundred metres to go and ran out a convincing winner. Conor Gaffney looked as if he might win his race, but had to give way to the eventual winner and settle for silver. Another silver medal was won by Adam Bury who followed up his success in Adamstown a couple of weeks ago with yet another good run. Well done to all. YOUTH CLUB

Due to the fireworks display for the Opera Festival this Friday, October 21, there will be no club meeting in the community centre. The following Friday (October 28) members can boogie the night away at the FDYS Halloween disco. Members are reminded to get their name down quickly to avoid disappointment as places on the bus must be booked in advance. Contact Ger on the club mobile number which is 087-6641602.

Congratulations to the team of James Allen, Sean Gayer and Diarmuid O`Connor who were winners of the under 18 FDYS table quiz on Friday last in the CBS.Not to be outdone a team of Karl Riordan, Rebecca Turner and Jane Corish beat all opposition in the U15 competition. A good effort was made by the other U15 team of Jane Shovlin, Theo Doyle and Megan Power. Well done to all.
