I personally think Carroll wont make top 30 and I think Ledwith has left his best race in NCAA (outstanding performance btw) so i think he'll be 22 - 30. Fagan will be top 3.
2 in the top 5 is dreaming!
Good win by Fagan in Manchester, he should be well up in the mix at Europeans. Also solid running by Carroll. Definitely a big improvement on his run at the Great South Run.
Has O' Lionaird definitely pulled out of mens u23 team? No updates on AAI site.
Any word on the 6th team member for the u23 women?
One of the US based girls? Roseanne G? Or next finisher in the trial?
You do realise top 15 means 1st to 15th, so by maximum you should mean 1st. Otherwise, you should have said Ledwith 15th maximum.

You were a bit off the mark with your predications!
I really think the Irish have a shot at a medal this year.
As you say Fagan looks like he will certainly improve on last year and Ledwith could also be in the top 10.
If you just have Carroll and one other having solid runs and finishing up in the top 15 - 20 I think that should be enough for a medal. It will all depend on how high up the top 10 the first 2 will be. 2 in the top 5 would be nice.
how bout that Keith Kelly guy he could always throw down in XC ?

Only chance Ireland will have of ever winning a medal at Euro Cross is if they can get Fagan, Cragg, Ledwith on the same team and the fourth placer whoever that would be runs the race of his life.
