Every national vest is special but for Tom Walshe getting his first international call up is something he will remember for the rest of his life. Tom made the Irish Schools cross country team for the SIAB International in Dublin after his great showing in the All Ireland schools in Clongowes two weeks ago.
On a beautiful day in Santry Demense Tom finishing in 28th position helped his Irish teammates to the team bronze medals. It was a great day for Tom and his training group who all traveled to support him. It was a great day for Nenagh CBS who he was representing on the Irish team, his club Nenagh Olympic and it was an especially emotional day for his parents Ronan and Bríd who give Tom and his brothers Ben and Ruairí unconditional love and support in all their sporting endeavors.
