Ciara Mageean withdraws from Irish European Cross Country Team


Ciara Mageean has withdrawn from the Irish team set to compete at the European Cross Country Championships in Italy (December 11th).

While disappointed not be joining her teammates in travelling to Turin this week, Ciara and her team have made the decision to allow Ciara to recover from a recent illness. It has been a season to remember for the City of Lisburn star and we look forward to seeing Ciara back in the green singlet in 2023.

Eilish Flanagan (Finn Valley AC) will now join sister Roisin on the senior women’s team as Ciara’s replacement. Eilish and Roisin will join an experienced senior women’s team which also includes Michelle Finn, Ann Marie McGlynn, Mary Mulhare, and Aoibhe Richardson.
