STATEMENT CONCERNING THE FUTURE PROMOTION OF RÁS MUMHAN: The organising committee of Rás Mumhan wishes to announce that they will not promote the event in 2021. The committee was disappointed to have been unable to host the 2020 edition of the race. The decision to withdraw from event promotion was taken early in 2020. The intention of the organising committee was to announce the decision at the conclusion of the 2020 race, events however overtook the plan. Given the complexity of organising the event, the committee felt it necessary to provide clarity regarding the future promotion of the race. It is hoped that this announcement will provide Cycling Munster with sufficient time to find an alternative promoter for Rás Mumhan for 2021. The committee wishes to sincerely thank all those involved in the promotion of the event that has been based Killorglin since 2001. The committee also wishes to acknowledge the longstanding support of all sponsors, especially, the title sponsor of the event, Kerry Group. The developments of recent years would not have been possible without Kerry Group’s support and in particular the encouragement of Mr. Frank Hayes. The committee feels fortunate to have been the custodians of the event, which has a long tradition within Irish cycling. We wish Cycling Munster every success with the event in the future, Tadhg Moriarty, Race Director (Photo courtesy of the Ras Mumhan’s social media page)
It is with a heavy heart that Panduit Carrick Wheelers would like to announce that we are postponing our Bobby Power Memorial Races until later this year. We are already in discussions with Cycling Ireland to get a date similar to last year’s event. As soon as we have more information about this we will let you all know. In addition, the club is waiving the membership fees for 2021!! Club Chairman Tom O’Connell said “As a club, we need to encourage people to cycle now more than ever. Waiving our fee in 2021 is our way of easing some of the financial stresses that people may be under during this pandemic. It is important that people continue to avail of Cycling Ireland Membership to ensure they can cycle with peace of mind that they are insured in the event of an accident, as well as other benefits that this membership offers.” (Photo courtesy of Panduit Carrick Wheelers social media page)
