Sean Kelly officially Launches South Tipp Cycle Club

On Friday May 31st South Tipperary Cycling Club members were were joined by former world number 1 cyclist Sean Kelly to officially launch the club in Clogheen.

The club was formed in August 2012 by a small group of cycling enthusiasts who wanted to promote the sport in their own local area, following the success of a number of local charity cycles.

The success of the Colaiste Dun Iascaigh first annual cycle proved the extent of people's interest in the sport and since the founding members - Bernard Lonergan, Martin Kennedy and John Byrne - have set the club up, it has gone from strength to strength and now boasts 60 members.
