"On Sunday next at the Dublin Cross Country Championships we celebrate the lives of two of Dublin's greatest ever athletes Jim McNamara(Donore Harriers) and Padraig Keane(Clonliffe Harriers) who died earlier this year.
Two new perpetual trophies will be up for competition.
1) The Jim McNamara Perpetual Cup for the winners of the Women's Senior Team championship.
2) The Padraig Keane Perpetual Cup for the winners of the Men's Senior Team Championship.
I ask all medallists in the Senior races to make themselves available for presentation in the Clonliffe Harriers Bar after the event so that we can truly honour these great Men".
Chairman Dublin Athletic Board.
