The handicaps were pretty much spot on as the groups were well mixed at the end and there was very little time between any of them. We had a new member taking on his first race which is always brilliant to see! Joseph Donnelly Jnr (Joey’s son) put in a stellar performance for his first race over a tough route and finished first in his group!! Unbelievable stuff, very well done and keep it up!! We had¬†Martin Cosgrave join us from Raparee CC who very much enjoyed the tough training he got as he tried out the scratch group and found the pace very strong, well done Martin! When all was said and done Liam Callaghan continued his dominance and won the sprint to the line to take another first place so big congrats again to Liam, fair play to you!! The rest of the podium places were taken by Owen Hynes and Nanno Vuyk respectively.
