“The boys  have trained very hard over the last couple of weeks and we at CBS, The Green  are all very proud of how far they have come,” said coach Helen Kelliher.

“To reach this stage in the Cross Country competition is a huge achievement in itself and we know they will give it their best shot on the day. A huge thanks to Casey Stephenson Accountants, David Lucid Insurances and O’ Donoghue’s Pharmacy  for kitting out the boys for this special occasion. Good luck lads!” added Helen.
