The relays are always last and after a long day the U12 boys stepped upto the mark, the team was made up of Naill O'Sullivan, Patrick Flanagan, Paul McGuire and Luke Hartnett(thanks for saving the day). Patrick got off to a flying start and passed to Luke who gave it his best shot passing to Paul, Paul dug deep and passed to Niall in a very tight finish the boys were pushed out of the medals into 4th - the boys were cheered on by their parents and all the other Le Chéile athletes.
