We’ll Meath Again Tour Report


We’ll Meath Again Tour is traditionally a wind down after the W200 and last Sundays tour was in keeping with tradition. Seamus Brennan organised and led the tour through 75km of beautiful country roads in the most amazing weather, probably the best cycling Sunday of the year so far.

Seamus, during his briefing, asked the group to turn their thoughts for a minute to fellow touring member Sean Pender, who tragically lost his son in Spain 3 weeks ago and to the late great Gay Farnan who so aptly named this tour many years ago. May they rest in peace.

Three members of the group had recently returned from a 600km cycle on the Costa Verde with The Irish Hospice Foundation which took them across the Picos de Europa including the torturous Cavodonga, which is regularly included in the Veulta, and they proudly sported their jerseys to prove it. Not to be outdone Seamus wore an even more colourful outfit which must be almost as old as he is but looks as good as the first day it was worn.

Seamus kept the group together at a very steady pace all day with just one puncture to report. Coffee stop was at approx. 50km in Jordan’s of Summerhill after which it was straight back the Summerhill Road at speed to the finish in Clonee.

After 7 rounds of the league Brendan Johnson and Tony Pearson are joint leaders with maximum points. Round 8 is the 100 in 8 and takes place on 11th August with a 9.00am start in Clonee.
