Meanwhile, Stephanie Cotter also picked up a bronze in the women's under-23s event over the same distance.

 

Speaking after winning silver in the senior women's event Ciara Mageean said, "to know I was fighting for a silver medal for Ireland was all the ambition I needed to get across the line.

"It was very tough out there and every girl did absolutely amazing. that was probably the toughest race I've ever ran in my life. The team to come away with a medal, and a fantastic Euro-Cross for the Irish team. Couldn't ask for much more."
