NEWS  14/08/2018

Thanks to Patsy Brady, who has submitted the following information to me. When doing research for another project he came across the report of the setting up of the Emyvale Cycling Club. It was a touring club until the early 1930's when it began taking part in competitions and has been in existence since then though it did change its name once or twice. It was known as St. Christopher's Cycling Club for a number of years.

The following is a copy of what was reported in the Northern Standard of June 25th, 1910:

Emyvale Cycling Club: On Monday evening the 13th inst., a meeting was held in the Courthouse, Emyvale, for the purpose of forming a Cycling Club. There was a good attendance. On the motion of Mr. J. Donaldson, seconded by Miss. Amberson, it was decided to form a club and the following officers were elected - Charles Reighill (captain), John F. Woods, (secretary), and James Elliot, jun, (treasurer).
On the 17th inst., the first run of the new club took place to Caledon, via Glasslough
(sic), and was heartily enjoyed by all who took part in it. Weekly Runs will be held in future.

Killylough CC Tour;

A large number of Emyvale cyclists took part in the Killylough CC charity tour on Saturday morning. Some did the 50km route but most opted for the 100km route taking them from Tydavnet to Edenmore, Eirigal X, Moybridge, Aughnacloy, Augher, Clogher, Drumfurrer and over to Knockatalon where there was a food stop. After Knockatalon is was on to Scotstown, Sweeneys X, Roslea, Clones, Killeevan, Smithborough, Ballinode and back to Tydavnet. Thanks to Killylough CC for a great, well organised tour with a barbecue and refreshments afterwards.

 

Racing News;

On the racing scene, Declan McEntee travelled to Dromore on Saturday for the John Beggs Memorial. Declan finished 18th in the A3s on this very tough, hilly course. Well done Dec.

On Sunday, Shay Mallon did the Billy Stewart Cup in Lurgan, run by Apollo CC. Shay was well up in a bunch of 20 riders in the sprint at the end, finishing just outside the points. Well done Shay.

 

Club TT;

There was a great turnout of 35 cyclists at the club TT in Tydavnet on Tuesday evening of last week . The league will run for 5 weeks and is open to other clubs or anyone with a Cycling Ireland licence.

 

Youth Cycling;

The youth group continue to go out on Saturday afternoons at 4.00pm opposite George's Shop.

Ben Reilly and Caolan McKenna are taking part in the National Youth Championships in Donloy / Ballymena, this weekend. Best of luck lads.
