    its a bloody rip off, how they can justify jacking the price up to 3x that of any other road race is beyond me, the numbers of spectators were well down this year because of it. still some good racing though.

    I had the pleasure to work in Carrick on Suir in the Summer of 2007.
    Met a great guy there, he organised the "Thursday Nite Rideout" Forgot his name :-(

    Also highly recommended: the Faugheen 50 road race

    I love the blue BT rope separating us spectators from the track :-D

    On of my favourite stretches in the south east is the R675 between Tramore and Dungarvan

    Looks as if you had a good time in Kerry.
    The summer has been bad this year, hopefully the winter will be a bit dryer.
