Training continues with the last 2 weeks of Monday swims at OBB and Wednesday spins from the Hub, before many people wind down after Glin and Kenmare.
This Thursday 23rd we will host our Club Mixed team relay – see here

IM DunLaoghaire 70.3 – Huge congratulations to our finishers at IM70.3 Dun Laoghraire – a choppy swim followed by a windy, hilly & technical bike course. Pádraig O’Sullivan was fastest LTC man in 5:24:08, with Nick O’Dwyer not far behind in 5:36:18. Well done to Seamus Monahan, Gerry McIntryre, Brian Condell, Keith McInerney, Lar Cleary, Martin O’Connell & Anthony Egan. We had a number of DNS (a combination of Injuries and the match!) Unfortunatley Johnn Culleton did not finish. Brenda Cosgrove put in lots of work training for this her first HIM, but it wasn’t to be – she stayed with a cyclist who came off his bike and waited for an Ambulance to arrive – sacrificing her own race. True sportsmanship.
Try the Hook – well done to Ruth Power
