We visited Drom village for a leg of our Track-Attack on Tour Series and again it proved to be an enjoyable and successful event. Mike Gleeson was first home in the 7.6km course in a time of 31:05 with Tom Shanahan and JP McSherry following him in times of 31:52: and 32:19 respectfully.
Máire O’Doherty was first home over the 4km distance in a time of 18:21 closely followed by Mary Ryan in 18:37 and Michelle Fitzpatrick in 20:06.
A notable performance came from 11 year old Kate Minogue who successfully completed the long course in impressive fashion.
Kilcommon is our last destination in what has been a very successful series. With the continuing growth of Track-Attack, we will have to add a few more venues to next year’s series.

Track-Attack Presentation
A huge thanks to everyone who turned out for the Track-Attack presentation night to Trevor Groome on Friday night last. There was a brilliant atmosphere at Finn’s Bar where it was very evident that those present appreciated and admired Trevor’s achievement of cycling from Mizen to Malin Head in under 21 hours.
The response to the fundraising aspect of the challenge has surpassed all expectations and we will announce the final figure of income in the next few days.
 The winner of the €100 was Amanda Linnane with the winning ticket been sold by Evelyn Groome.
