Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club notes

 Well done to Denis O Connor who finished 4th and Dan Murphy who had a top 20 finish in the Des Hanlon Race held in Carlow at the weekend. This race attracted the top talent in the country and the lads hard work over the winter months is now paying dividends. The juveniles made the long journey to Coalisland Co Tyrone this weekend for the Youth Qualifying races. Amy Fleming came 4th in U14 girls competition, the width of a tyre denying her a podium spot. Ben Murphy attacked all day and finished 9th overall in a hugely competitive U16 qualifier. Kate Murphy was second in the Girls under 12. All roads lead to Dungarvan on Sunday next with Juveniles/Juniors and Adults races on the card. Well done to all the club members who took part in the SRAC Sportive in Tralee last Saturday and in doing so conquered the Conor Pass it’s now only 15 weeks to the Ring of Kerry so now is the perfect time to kick off your plan and build the miles up gradually. New members always welcome to both adult and juvenile section of the club – learn to enjoy a great sport and gain some new friends – For further information contact 087 7023562 or the club Facebook page.
