Bad weather conditions meant there was a small turnout for the 2014 Sliabh Luachra TT. In the men’s category, Tralee BC rider Cathal Moynihan had a convincing victory, followed by TomBarrett and DanO’Brien in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. The men’s category may have had a different appearance had Jerry McCarthy not had an unfortunate accident and we wish him a speedy
recovery.

Suzanne O’Sullivan of Currow CC picked up the women’s prize for the host club from Helen Barrett of iBike..
