Avril Deegan travelled to France recently where she took part in the French National Cross Country Championship as a guest with Club Vernon. This was a huge event and Avril ran well in a large field of over 300 scoring second for the team and placed 41 overall. A fantastic experience for Avril which is good perpetration for the All-Ireland Schools Cross Country in Belfast this 11th of March. Best of luck Avril and all the Thurles presentation school team.
