Frank O’Rourke RR & other news

  • A great turnout from the club at the Frank O’Rourke Mem Road Races but unfortunatly no silverware! Stephen Kelly was best in 7th place in A4 race, Rita was 1st lady, Shane Kelly was best in A3 while Frank Dunne finished 5th after working hard in the A1/2 break. Good to see Ger Leacy, Andrew Dowse and Phil Skelton make the jump from the novice league to open racing. Both Mick Byrne in the A4 and Mick McLean in the A3 hit the deck but both are fine.

  • Darragh Jennings took 2nd in the U12 race continuing his rapid progress from Sprocket Rocket while Adam, Ryan And Fionn were up against the unstoppable Micheal O Loughlin from Carrick in the U14 race. Adam finished 3rd with Ryan 4th.
  • Final race in Davidstown on this Wednesday where we will present the A4/Novice leage prizes. Weather looks good so hopefully we’ll have a big crowd again.
  • The club will hold Open Underage racing on the Davidstown Circuit on Saturday July 2nd the day before the Eddie Tobin Race.
  • It was good to have Ramie Herron from the Phoenix CC in Belfast with us for the weekend. Ramie was down to support his two brothers playing for the Antrim senior hurlers in Wexford on Sunday and came out on the Saturday and Sunday spins. He was so impressed with the Wexford roads he hopes to be back down in July for the Ferns Sportif !
