Round 3 of the Wheelworx sponsored and Orwell wheelers organised Ladies Crit League took place in Corkaigh Park Dublin on April 23rd. Muirna Walsh lined up with the A group for the first time after being upgraded following some top place finishes in previous rounds.

The race came down to a bunch sprint with Muirna finishing strongly in 11th. Round 4 returned to Sandyford on 30th April. Muirna Walsh and Noreen Garahy broke clear of the main group early on and held onto a gap of only 15 seconds for the final five laps. It wasn't until the final lap that a chasing group of 4 got across to them, and when it came down to the sprint returning champion Sandra Fitzgerald won by a comfortable margin.

Behind her Muirna Walsh was rewarded for her efforts when she just held off Trish Buckley for 2nd place, with Noreen Garahy hanging in for 4th. Muirna now lays 2nd overall in the A League table. Report to follow on Round 5 which is taking place in Corkaigh Park on 7th May.
