Drumquin cyclists cover 175 miles in single day!

Cycling Drumquin

A GROUP of intrepid cyclists covered an amazing 175 miles in one day while cycling from Mizen Head to Malin Head at the weekend.

The team members, mostly from Drumquin Cycling Club, rode a staggering 406 miles in just three days.

Blessed with perfect weather and backed up by three support vehicles, the crew departed from Mizen Head on Friday morning and arrived at their destination on Sunday afternoon.


At the close of play on Day One the cyclists had reached Castletroy, Limerick.  From there it was onwards and upwards. Fuelled by tins of Ambrosia rice among other things, the group then rode to their home village of Drumquin – an amazing 174.5 miles – on Day Two before completing the run to Malin Head on Sunday.

Drumquin Cycling Club chairman Brian Lunney paid tribute to his fellow cyclists and thanked the support team for their invaluable contribution.

Those who took part were Brian and Anthony Lunney, Ian Irwin, Hugh McCann, John and Dermot Gallagher, Paul Donnelly, Paul Gormley, Mark McDermott, Dessie Mullan, Paddy McFarland, Peter McGuckin, Colm Martin, John and Julie Mulligan.
