10th Anniversary Celebrations

Well done to Ciaran Furlong and John Canavan  on not only coming up with the concept of having a 10th Anniversary celebration but seeing it through to the end with really well-organised and great evening and meal in the Amber Springs, Gorey.  Well done, Ciaran on a very inclusive and magnanimous speech that included references to former members and to John Maguire, the newly-crowned club champion on a very memorable and fantastic winner’s speech.

 

Well done to our award winners, Willie Murphy, who quite literally runs himself into the ground for the club and to  ” our cyclist of the year  ” award-winner, Marian O’Regan on her fantastic achievement of completing the Home to Rome cycle which included both the Alps and Apennines  after only taking up cycling early this year . She has become a very valued club member in that short time.

We have a great club with a great spirit and terrific camaraderie. This was very evident on Saturday night  last.

CHARLIE LOGAN

All members and the  Committee of the club wish Charlie all the best after a major operation on Monday last in St James’ Hospital. Charlie has been a member of the club for a few  years and is a well-known figure on the roads of Wicklow and Wexford. He is always very helpful to fellow cyclists and has a vast knowledge of cycling and bicycles.

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS 2014, WELL DONE, JOHN

Congratulations to John “Kittel” Maguire on taking his third SERC club championship  after a little gap from the top spot on the podium.  Well done to Ciaran Furlong in second place and Frank  O’Leary who travelled down from Dublin to take third  spot, having survived a puncture.  Well done to Johnny Halford for giving his wheel to Frank.

This is the third time that Ciaran has been second  and  on two of those occasions to John Maguire.  It’s all the hard work that you are putting into the 10th Anniversary dinner that cost you those  precious few inches in the sprint.

Well done to all the cyclists who turned out today in ideal  conditions for making a tough but exciting race. It is evident that the long year of racing  hasn’t diminished  the appetite as it was a most competitive race.

Many thanks to all who gave a hand out to ensure that we had a very safe race.

 

RESULTS
