Finn Valley AC
It's been a case of watching the weather, whether on the TV, mobile, internet or listening intently to Mickey the Post to get a gauge of training or otherwise in recent weeks. All of those outlets indicate a solid six degrees, no rain for next Sunday so its all systems go for national underage uneven ages in Tullamore and National cross country for Finn Valley squads. We wish them well and are happy in the knowledge that despite difficult conditions the young guns stuck to their training so its now all down to having a lash on the day.
Across in US no worries next Saturday as Tori Pena opens her season in Seattle.
