Weekend Round-up March 12th

RacingĀ Round-up

On Saturday 3 Tullamore CTC members took to the roads around Clonard for Ras Naomh Finian. Myself, Aidan McNamara and Jimmy O’Connor flew the flag for the club. Over 300 cyclists turned up with over 100 setting off in our A4 group.

New Website

So I have taken the old website offline. From here on I will post information on here. I still have all the old information so if anyone would like me to put up some of that please email me.


I had already started a new website but I had some difficulty with removing the information so I have to start again.


I will be adding information to the website over the coming weeks and it will take some time to build up.


Happy Reading Everyone.
