Team Ireland will be looking to replicate their podium finish at the 2019 championships in Lisbon.

There are a number of athletes in the midlands aiming to make the upcoming Ireland U23 women's team for the European Cross Country Championships. 

Danielle Donegan from the Tullamore Harriers hopes to compete in her third championship in a row after she competed at this level in Dublin in 2021 and Turin last year. 

The Offaly club has two more likely candidates.

Laura Mooney also represented Ireland at those same championships, as well as setting a new Irish U23 10,000m record in 2022.  

While 19 year old Ava O'Connor will be hopeful of a call up after another excellent year competing across Europe and US. 

The championships get underway December 10th in Laeken Park in Brussels.
