Picture special: Catriona Devine joins Finn Valley AC Hall of Fame

first_imgCatriona McGranaghan was inducted into the Finn Valley AC Hall of Fame last night.Finn Valley’s women won eight senior cross-country titles in a row from ’93 to ’00 and McGranaghan scored on six of them.In all, she won 12 Irish Cross-Country titles. “It’s a special moment for my family,” Catriona said after becoming only the second female to join an elite list, one that includes her father, Peadar, a founder member of Finn Valley AC.“They’ve been through everything with me. I missed a lot of family events because of my running, but they always understood and supported me.“I was very fortunate to walk onto the path my family led for me.“It set me up for life. Athletics was very good for me and discipline was one of the best things I took. “At a very young age I was competitive. I didn’t always win at juvenile level.“Coming into junior level I got the hunger for success. Being second and third wasn’t an option any more.”Kay Byrne scored in all eight of those famous Finn Valley teams and goes back a long way for her memories of the young McGranaghan, at Porter’s Field just behind their home at Hillhead in Castlefin.“She couldn’t have been more than four or five when she came out of the hedge at her house,” Byrne recalled.“We used to train there with Peadar. We’d be up running around and this wee doll came out with wellingtons on and was a flier then! “Catriona really deserves it. She has achieved so much and was a fabulous junior athlete. She was way ahead of anything else.“She was an athlete we had to hold back. She trained with seniors before she was a senior and she would have run ‘til she dropped.”Picture special: Catriona Devine joins Finn Valley AC Hall of Fame was last modified: December 10th, 2016 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
