There was Galway success in the National Cross-Country Championships on Sunday as Craughwell Athletic Club’s William Fitzgerald won the Boys under 17 event.
Fitzgerald was the final Juvenile winner of the day when he came home in cold and biting conditions to beat Tullamore’s Philip King and Ballyroan/Abbeyleix runner Ryan Hogg to the national title.
