Mullingar man Damien Shaw, riding for the Cork Aquablue team, took a very impressive fourth place in today's (Tuesday 20th May) stage of the An Post Rás.  Damien, along with one of the An Post team rode across from the peleton to the breakaway group of seven riders and put in a huge effort to get clear of this elite group in the final kilometers in an attempt for a solo victory.  However, this wasn't to be and he was reeled in but still managed to secure fourth place and first county rider home in Caharleville.

This was a super performance by Damien, especially considering he was mixing it with riders who are regularly competing at a higher level that he is.
