Club members Jason Murphy and Adam Murphy were in Tweed Valley Scotland last weekend competing at the Tweedelove International Enduro Event.

Killarney Cycling Club members Luke Costello Ewan Buckley and Sam Bolger took part in the Kanturk three-day over the long weekend.

Saturday’s practice highlighted the high level of competition that lay ahead with a number of top International professionals in the field.
Jason rode consistently well throughout the six stages to finish 13th in his category of 119. Due to unfortunate circumstances, Adam was unable to start the race on Sunday but will no doubt be back in action soon.

XC:
Last weekend saw back to back racing in the Slieve Bloom Mountains for the final two rounds of this year’s XC Biking Blitz Series.

Mark McGlynn, Patrick Clifford, Michael Coghlan and Callum Steadman all took to the start line for Killarney CC. Some top 10 results over the two days along with a second and a first place for Callum Steadman in the Junior race finished out the series on a high for Killarney CC members.

Road:
The Kanturk three-Day stage race run by O’Leary Stone Kanturk Cycling Club took place over the Bank Holiday weekend in the neighbouring county Cork.

Killarney CC had Sam Bolger, Ewan Buckley and Luke Costello in the Senior race and Ben O’Keeffe competing in the U16s.

Some hard efforts all weekend were well rewarded with Ewan taking home the A3 GC jersey after four taxing stages.

Sam finished third on Stage three and went one better on Stage four, to collect silver. Luke's aggressive racing in his first stage race meant he finished amongst the top Junior racers in the country.
Ben also battled hard all weekend in the U16’s race and will be one to watch in the future.
David Culloty of AllHuman VeloRevolution racing also took part and got into the winning move on the final day to finish fifth in stage four.

Leisure:
Registration has now opened on eventmaster for the Clubs Sportive Cycle, the Three Peaks Challenge which takes place on June 17 from St. Oliver's School, Ballycasheen.

Kristy Nicholas, pictured, found the ring on s footpath in the Lackabane Estate in Fossa on December 29 last.

Since then she has exhausted all channels in an effort to find the owner including regular contact with the Gardai and local word of mouth.

“Since that time I worked to find the owner through word of mouth and by filing a report with Gardai. Since I’ve been unsuccessful,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The owner could ring the Killarney Gardai station and provide details to be connected with me. To be reunited a description will be needed, such as the brand and designer and type of ring It’s quite an expensive ring so I’m really hoping to get it back to the right place.”
