The Coláiste Oiriall Minor Girls was the next race and the mile long race was becoming increasingly difficult with the standard of the underfoot conditions deteriorating with the heavy rain. Helen Ni Fhailigh took an individual silver medal in this race and the team won gold in the overall standings. The team was made up of 6 runners with the best 4 scores to count. After a fall from one runner on the starting line on the bridge and a pile up of bodies as a result, it was a major feat that these girls finished the race. Laura Ní Fhailigh had taken a bad fall and waited until the race was completed to nurse her injuries. The team consisted of Helen Ni Fhailigh (2), Sorcha Ni Néill (4), Aisling Ni Ghallchóir (6), Marie Louise Nic Aodha (7), Laura Ni Fhailgh (8) and Rebecca Nic Cionna.

Conor O Dughaill was rewarded with an individual bronze medal in the Junior Boys event. He had lead for most of the race but the increased distance to 2 miles proved too much on the final bend.

The Coláiste Oiriall Junior Girls were silver medal recipients in the team event. The runners on this team were Jessica Ní Chorragáin (17), Casey Jane Ni Eilí (9), Róisín Ni hAmaill (8), Karen Ni Fhionnagáin Ní Mhanáis (6) and Blaithín Ni Dhulain (13).
