Following the annual Christmas Morning Mushera Climb 2018 the proceeds amounted to the wonderfully impressive amount of €2,000.00. A cheque for this uplifting amount was presented on Thursday night (7th Feb. 2019) in Aubane Community Centre to Shirley O’Regan of Youghal – the Irish Community Rapid Response by Land & Air Representative – in aid of the new Air Ambulance which will be based in Rathcoole. MC, John F. Kelleher, expressed thanks to the many dedicated people who helped to make this very praiseworthy project such a great success again this year. Shirley outlined the importance of such fundraising for the all-important developing Air Ambulance Service and provided an update on the progress of the overall project…with special reference to Rathcoole. A brief interview with Shirley may be heard on Cork Music Station this Tuesday, 12th Feb. at 10pm in the “Radio Treasures” programme. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

As we approached the category two climb at Musheramore at 133km, the dynamic of the race began to change irrevocably. Astana hit the front of the peloton and began to peg back the leading duo. The gap was reduced to 6 minutes 57 seconds.
Here van Winden made a dash for it, dropping Cassidy on the ascent. On the way down the other side of the hill, van Winden had a two minute lead. An Post Sean Kelly Team Niko Eeckhout abandoned here; the climb just too much for the veteran Belgian.
Cassidy did hold on to second going over the summit at Musheramore, with Matt Wilson, last year’s King of the Mountains taking third place, adding crucial points in his hunt to retain his jersey this year.
Jay Thomson was fourth adding more points to his impressive ride in the Tour overall.
Van Winden took maximum points at the sprint at Millstreet followed by Cassidy, Andrey Grivko of ISD – Neri and Jason McCartney of Team Saxo Bank.
