With just a few days to go before we head to Ennis, we profile the youngest (by one day) of the five Team Comeragh riders, Aaron. No stranger to breakaways, Aaron is yet to get his name on this years score sheet. Won’t be long though I’m sure


I joined Comeragh CC in 2014 and have raced ever since. I have been looking forward to the junior tour ever since the last one finished. My Major achievements to date our 2nd Silver Pail GP in 2016. 5th in Barrow Wheelers GP and 4th in De Ronde Classic both in 2017.Really looking forward to testing the legs against the best in Clare.
