A year in Review 2019/20

As our club calendar year draws to a close we are unable to hold our annual General meeting to look back over the year gone by and plan for the year ahead. A virtual meeting poses too many challenges so the current committee will remain in place with the addition of Seosamh O’Reilly and Geraldine Fennell who will represent their groups G1 and G5. The incoming committee are Chairperson Mike Wall, Secretary Anthony Murtagh, Treasurer Michael Morley, PRO to be confirmed, Membership Officer Tomas Mac Craith, Safeguarding Officer Jason Travers, Race Director John Coleman, Youths Darren Tutty, Committee Carol Byrne, Nora Hally, Seosamh O’Reilly and Geraldine Fennell. We wish the committee the very best and thank them for continuing to keep things afloat in very difficult circumstances.

The Club has had a very successful and busy year considering the trials and changes Covid 19 threw at us. Our membership grew this year to 181 members, and all groups benefited by the bigger numbers as did the profile of the club.
On the social side of things the club hosted a very festive Christmas party held in the Anchor bar. On the night we launched our 2019 yearbook which was a beautiful keepsake for the commemorations earlier in the year. We are pleased to confirm it was a welcome addition to many bookshelves both here and abroad and a great memento for years to come. In February and before our world changed we held a very successful table quiz to raise funds for our youth riders. This event was very well supported and a great night was had by all.

The DCC jersey was not as well travelled as other years but did manage a trip to Tenerife with the G1 lads. Unfortunately the annual trip to Mallorca was cancelled as were all the usual sportifs which we love to support. However the weather was good and our members clocked up huge miles around our own locality, discovering roads much less traveled than in previous years and realizing that when the sun is ...

Club Spins

As Covid case numbers both locally and nationally continue to rise, the Committee have come to the decision to suspend all club spins with immediate effect.

The health of our members, families and our local community are at the heart of this decision. We will continue to monitor this on an ongoing basis and provide updates when necessary.

Members can continue to train individually, with other members of their household and in line with the guidelines for outdoor meetings as advised by Government yesterday.

Thank you,
DCC Committee

Here are this weekends adventures...

The Saturday Club had 20 on a dry but blustery morning. Splitting into 2 groups of 10 in line with covid 19 restrictions it was off up Old Parish, a nice climb to get the heart rate racing, over to Ardmore and onto Tallow. A quick refuel before a very fast pace home. Both groups coming home at an avg of 29kph. Well done to Nicola and Pat on their first outing with the club, the first of many we hope! 😃

Sunday was a gorgeous morning with light winds and warm sunshine. 🌞

The G1 lads with Mark at the helm completed the Lismore, Ballyduff, Tallow circuit and diverted to Villierstown on the way home. 95k at 32kph

G3 took on the Carrick, Clonmel route with a diversion to Tourneena on the way home 100k at 26kph with 1000m climbed.

Group 4 set off from Dungarvan for the climb up Colligan and onto Halfway into a headwind. Turning left for ... See more

Leisure activities 🚴‍♀️ ☕

The weather played havoc with club spins this weekend with Saturday the better day. The Saturday Club spin had the quota of 15 riders for the trip to Tipp. Climbing Colligan into a fierce headwind progress was slow to Knocklofty. A pep in their step after the climb it was a snappy pace to Clogheen for coffee. A beautiful day to take in the Vee in all its glory and an even nicer spin home aided by a lovely tailwind. 95k at 29kph.

Storm Alex threatened the Sunday cohort of riders and G4 were the only group to brave the elements
The headwind to the Welcome Inn was very tough but there was some shelter once they turned left heading for Kereen and on to the turn off for Aglish. Passing through Aglish and onto Villerstown and Dromana it was blustery in places. Once they ... See more
