Cancellation of cross country running

Cross Country Cancellation Notice

To all Schools

It is with sincere regret that I have to inform you that we have had to cancel this year's Primary Schools Cross Country which was due to be held on Wednesday 11th November in Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale.

Following an inspection of the venue on Monday with the site manager, it was determined that the recent spate of bad weather which is due to continue for the rest of this week and the effect that the persistent rain of late which has caused the pitches to become unusable in places and the long term damage that the 1100 children taking part in the event may cause

We did attempt to come up with an alternative venue and date but we were advised that this would be too impractical at such short notice.

Therefore, on behalf of the committee and myself, I would like to apologise for the disappointment that this cancellation at such short notice may cause, especially to those of you who have already made travel arrangements and to the children and their coaches who have put in many hours preparing for this event. Unfortunately, these were circumstances which were beyond our control.

Hopefully we will be able to secure a new venue for the event in 2016 that will be capable of catering for the increasing numbers of participants.

Schools that have paid their entry fees for this event these will be returned over the next couple of days.

Yours sincerely,

Mossie Woulfe
