On Easter Weekend (Friday 6th to Sunday 9th April) we had a team of three, Johnny Murray, Damien Shaw and Peter Rimmer, representing the club in Ràs Mumhan in Kerry. Ràs Mumhan is four stage (each stage is over 100km) race ran over the Easter bank holiday weekend every year which attracts most of the top Irish teams & riders from around the country and indeed from overseas also. 

Our three lads did us all very proud putting some really hard riding over the weekend with Damien Shaw taking 5th in a stage and 10th overall in the final General Classification. Also over the Easter Weekend Paul Crowley was flying the flag for the club at Ràs Chonamara in what I believe was a very thought race. Well done lads, keep up the good work!
