Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club weekly notes

Many thanks to the people of Millstreet for their generous contributions at our Church gate collections Saturday evening and Sunday morning, it is very much appreciated.

A very exciting Easter weekend in store for the club with SLCC tackling Ras Mumham – a four day event covering the toughest terrain Kerry has to offer.
Best of luck to the team of Richard Cleverly, Donie Kelleher, Johnny R O Sullivan along with guest riders Richard O Brien (Blarney CC) and Tom Shanahan (Limerick CC).
Denis O Connor and Dan Murphy’s are heading to Gorey for the Easter weekend riding as part of a Munster Selection Team.
Young Denis O Connor continues his rich vein of form, with a 3rd place finish in last Sunday’s Donal Crowley Memorial A3 race in Blarney. Denis was in a group of 4 that got away in atrocious conditions and was pipped by two O’Leary Stone Kanturk riders in a tight sprint finish.
Well done also to Richard Cleverly who came 10th in the A1/A2 Section of the race.
The juveniles headed to Drogheda last weekend for the superbly organised Ras Na Nog. A three stage event scheduled over 2 days with a HQ in Bellewstown Racecourse. Amy Fleming and Ben Murphy finished in the top 10 overall in their respective categories while Kate Murphy was 3rd overall U12 (Girl).
Overall the SLCC riders performed very well with a number of top 10 finishes.
Training for Juveniles interested in either leisure or competitive cycling continues every Saturday at 9am.
Well done to our club members who took part in Kenmare GAA Fund raising cycle hosted by Kenmare Cycling Club taking in the Caha Pass and Healy Pass.
New members always welcome to both adult or 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

The fundraising event which was organised by the club and in particular, Michael Murphy, was very well supported and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated, made donations and assisted with stewarding on the day. The presentation was made before the Charity Benefit game between Cork and Kilkenny in Pairc Ui Rinn.

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.

MCS Presentation to Soccer Player Supreme Ciarán O’Sullivan of Cullen

Millstreet Community Student Third Year student, Ciarán O’Sullivan from Mologhroe, Cullen has been called up to the Republic of Ireland Under-15 Squad.  They travel to Spain next week for three matches against Spain, the Netherlands and Hungary.  Ciarán, who plays with Mallow United, is the sole Cork, and indeed Munster, representative to have been selected for this prestigious tournament and he is expected to earn his first cap for Ireland during the week.  On Friday morning (25th Jan. 2019) School Principal Pól Ó Síodhcháin in the presence of the Student Assembly and Staff presented Ciarán with a special certificate on behalf of the school.  He had his Ireland jersey with him and some of the School’s own soccer team kitted out for the occasion.   Ciarán’s mother, Marie, was also present for the uplifting occasion.  We extend sincere congratulations to the wonderfully talented Ciarán on such a magnificent sporting achievement.   We thank Principal Pól for alerting us to the presentation and for providing the background information.   Here we share a selection of some twelve images from the special event.   Even a splendid rainbow appeared over the School following the occasion!  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
