Club Notes

Dromineer Aquathon – Race 3: takes place tomorrow Wednesday June 5th at 7:00pm. The weather is looking great and the wind looks like it will be coming slowly from the south = the lake will be like glass. If you want to set a new PB then tomorrow is the day to do it. The race will be handicapped as per usual.

National Series Race Entry:

Lost Sheep Half Ironman: Entries for this race open tomorrow morning at 8:00am. You can register via the Triathlon Ireland website. This well sell out straight away so make sure to enter when it opens.

Dublin City Triathlon: This is a National Series race that you should consider doing. Registration is currently open but there are only a few spots left so if you feel like doing it then register soon.

TriAthy: there is a supposed to be a full race report coming for this. One of the girls is writing it so it should be ready to publish some time next month! Until then you will have to make do with this picture. You can make up your own story to go with it. There are toilets, ambulances and some club members – you can fill in the gaps.


Rosses Point Triathlon: Ronan O’Driscoll was our sole representative in this National Series Olympic distance race in Sligo. Ronan put in a good swim and bike time which helped him to finish in 72nd overall and win more valuable points for the club.

Run Racing: Darren Dunne won a silver medal at the AVIVA All-Ireland Schools Track & Field Championships in Tullamore on Saturday. Darren set a fantastic new pb of 8:53 in the 3000m final.

Bike Racing: It was a relatively quiet week on the bike racing front. Just two club members were in racing action. Shane and Gary Scully made the long trip up to Donegal for 3 day stage event that is Rás Dhun na nGall. Both lads did well with Gary finishing in 14th and Shane 16th (read race report).

Next up: Limerick Summer League, Thursday cycle, Rás Clár on Sunday.


Saturday Club Cycle:  A good number turned up last Saturday, considering many were busy in Athy or enjoying the bank holiday lovely weather.  Eleven of us headed towards Toomevara led by Sean Gleeson and Clifford Guest, setting an easy pace which was very appreciated by the less experienced riders.  After a short stop at Dolla for a family photograph the ride remained easy making it a very sociable ride, so when the group reached the Limerick road some hard dudes decided to go home cross country by Coum towards Portroe while the remaining gang headed directly home.
