We would like to thank everybody who made Stage 2 of our  International Cycle race held on the roads of West Limerick/North Kerry  on Saturday 15th ,  of the Easter Week-end such a huge success. Thank you to the public for their co-operation as there are traffic delays as the race moves along the route.
It is a huge operation to put a race of this magnitude on the public roads and the help and co-operation we received was enormous.
We say thank you to the Gardaí, for their help and advice. To all the local & national  correspondants and local radio stations for keeping the public informed.
The local cycling community took the race on board in a big way. Glin Knights were superb as were Athea CC, Listowel CC, also  Newcastle West CC, Kerry Crusaders CC, and many more who all helped with Stewarding the 130km Route.
Athea was outstanding , everybody helped in some way. Our appreciation to Athea GAA Club,
Athea Community Council, Athea Tidy Towns Committee, Tim & Con Scanlon is acknowledged. To our local sponsors. Adams Garage Glin,  Athea Sponsors were, Paul Collins Bar, TJ Reidy Cleaning Services, Raymond Enright Kitchens, & Colm Hassett Gym & Fitness Centre.
Our Stage Sponsors were G. Moriarty & Sons Electrical Contractors Listowel & Listowel Cycling Club & the Main Sponsor Kerry Group PLC. Also thank you to St. Michaels College & Emmets GAA Club in Listowel for hosting the start. A race like this cannot operate without Ambulance & medical cover , thank you to all here.
The icing on the cake was when we had a local winner,  Paul Kennedy of the Newcastlewest Team fought off top riders from , Ireland, England, Isle of Man, France ,Italy and Germany  to take victory to the delight of the local crowd.  This was the biggest win by a Limerick cyclist for a long time, and is up there with any victory by any Limerick athlete in any sport this year.  It was great to see him cross the line on RTE 6 o clock news that evening.  Of course we had the lovely Griffin twin sisters Amie & Racel and Katie Reidy to add glamour to the occasion when they presented flowers to the winners.
What a pity the Sports pages of some the local papers did not give the win and the race the coverage it deserved.
Many thanks to all from Billy Reidy Stage Organizer and Tadhg Moriarty Race Director.
