The 23rd edition of the Charleville Two-Day Road race took place in Cork last Saturday and Sunday, with a strong field for the last stage race of the year.

Killarney Cycling Club had Frank Doherty, John Blackwell, Luke Costelloe, Milo Donaldson and Shane Spellman lining out in the A2/A3/Junior race and Pierce Curtin taking to the start of the A3/Masters/A4 race.

Costelloe and Doherty were fortunate to slip through a late crash on Stage One to contest the bunch sprint and finished fourth and sixth respectively.

Luke continued his strong form, after recent participation in the Junior Tour of Wales, to make the winning break of Stage 3, to finish 11th on the stage and the General Classification for the weekend.

In his first season of racing with Killarney Cycling Club, Pierce Curtin has shown to be a natural, finishing eighth on the opening stage and second on the third test to secure fourth overall in the General Classification in the A3/Masters/A4 race.

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
