Good day out for South East Road Club in Wex­ford

Bray People - - Sport -

THE SOUTH East Club had good day at the an­nual County Wex­ford cham­pi­onships on Sun­day last which was run un­der the aegis of Slaney Cycling club. The tough En­nis­cor­thy to Ou­lart cir­cuit was used.

In the se­nior race, South East Road club mem­ber Cathal Red­mond took sec­ond place. Cathal has had a very suc­cess­ful and long sea­son, in­clud­ing two ma­jor vic­to­ries in the Betty Darcy Memo­rial Race and the Ed­die Tobin memo­rial race, and in­tends tak­ing a well-de­served rest, be­fore re­sum­ing train­ing for next sea­son.

The new county Wex­ford ju­nior cham­pion is also a mem­ber of the South East Road club. Or­win Moy­nagh, who has been mem­ber since its foun­da­tion four years ago, took the hon­ours with an­other mem­ber An­drew Bracken, a mem­ber of the well­known Ark­low cycling fam­ily, tak­ing third place.

Both of th­ese cy­clists have tak­ing top plac­ings over the past weeks and they are prod­ucts of the South East Road club’s un­der age pro­gramme as are over twenty other un­der-age cy­clists from the Gorey and Ark­low ar­eas.

Club mem­ber John Flood from Avoca com­peted in the in­ter­provin­cial un­der age track cham­pi­onships in Dublin on Sun­day as part of the Le­in­ster team that were joint win­ners with Ul­ster, where as usual he gave a good ac­count of him­self.

This makes John the fourth mem­ber of the club to rep­re­sent his prov­ince, the oth­ers be­ing Stephen Bracken, Kyle Mur­phy and An­drew Bracken.

The good weather on Sun­day re­sulted in a great turnout for the un­der-age tour Sun­day Tour.

The young cy­clists en­joyed a pleas­ant trip to the Meet­ing of the Wa­ters near Rath­drum, where they met a group of Amer­i­can tourists who were so im­pressed with the at­ti­tude of the younger club mem­bers that they took nu­mer­ous pho­to­graphs and left very pleas­ant mem­o­ries.
