Both girls from the Crossmaglen area picked up silver medals in their divisions in what was a brilliant competition for Ireland overall. “This is a fantastic result for two fantastic athletes,” he said. “The girls are an absolute credit to themselves, to south Armagh and their country. The whole area couldn’t be prouder of them and I’ve no doubt that there are even bigger things to come from these girls in the future. “To earn a spot representing your country is an incredible achievement in itself but to head out to Europe and take on the best of the best, it just shows what they’re made of. He added, “They’ve been fantastic ambassadors for Ireland and south Armagh and I’m sure the whole area, indeed the whole country, will join me in congratulating them and the rest of the Irish team.”
