Finn valley AC senior mens x country team is a work in progress as they target getting back to a period in their history when they dominated Ulster and invariably Donegal .Hence the performance of their men today in Dublin at the national inter club champs was a boost for that ideal as tbey won tbe grade B team title led by Dermot Mc Elchar supported by Gerard Gallagher Seamus O Donnell and Mark Mc Paul .This was greeted with great delight by their solid support group. Unfortunately a County team minus a number of key personnel did not impact an issue that the Co Board may wish to discuss if they serious about chasing medals in the future.
The womens Co team led by Co Champion Teresa 8th after a valiant effort that saw her push for a top 5 spot and with Claire Mc Guigan Karen Crossan and Michelle Hamilton on board were 3rd behind Dublin and Cork again though understrength plaudits to them as they flew the flag and continued a great tradition of impact built on the great Valley teams of some years ago.
Next up is the national novice and uneven age champs Waterford Dec 17th and then the annual Stephens Day 5k 12 noon .. In the interim the annual festive get together will be held Saturday night 8pm .Tickets €15.
