Kerry County League 2015

The last Round of the Kerry County League Cycling is on in Currow on Thursday night next (August 6th). Sign on is from 6.30 to 7pm at the hall with the first race starting at 7.15 sharp. The circuit is the same as the underage at the Drumm Cup races (Lisheenbawn/Laharn). The order of the groups starting is CC/A4, A3, A1/2 (all 6 laps), U16 (4 laps) , U14 (3 laps) and finally U12 (1 lap). There is no parking on the circuit except for the parking spaces at the finish line that are for the lead cars only so please cooperate with this request on safety grounds as the marshalls that volunteer their time have enough to deal with non-race traffic. Stewards please assemble in Currow at 6.45pm and all help is welcome (from other clubs also) bearing in mind we have 6 groups on the road on the first circuit. See you all Thursday night for what will hopefully be a fitting finale for what has been a well promoted and exciting series

The annual leisure tour will take place on June 14th at 9.30am from Currow Hall. Distances are 100km and 60km. Entry fee is 20 euro. Refreshments provided as usual.

Day Care Cycle 2014

The last promotion for the club in 2014 is the day care leisure cycle on September 7th. Same route as last year which is from Castleisland to Currow onto Davy Roches cross and back to Castleisland which is where the 10 mile route finishes.

Then the 50 mile route continues to Ballycarthy, onto Farranfore, Scartaglin and again back to Castleisland

As usual the entry fee / minimum sponsorship is 20 euro. Sponsorship cards are available from Murphys Sports Castleisland, O’Sullivans Centra Currow or from the Day Care Centre itself.

This event is a spin to finish off the season with – maybe for some its a taster for future events in 2015 and for others the chance for a final event of the season. Remember it is not a race and is to be enjoyed with the aim of getting around safely.
