Saturday last was the day of the annual Irish and British Masters Cross Country International. It was held in Belfast.

The Ferbane Athletic’s Club involvement was in the shape of Paul Buckley who was a member on the Men’s 35 Team who won their category for a record sixth year in a row.

It was Paul’s first International Masters competition and he hopes its a sign of things to come in the future.

Also in action for the Club on Saturday was Paul Mitchell who was on the roads again, coming second in the Dromard 5k behind the ever impressive Noel Kelly from Tullamore Harriers.

Well done to both lads in their respective events.
