Comeragh Cycling Club was established in 1987 in the Sean Kelly & Stephen Roche era when cycling became very popular, at the time Comeragh CC had between 20-30 youth members.
With the introduction of Playstations, Nintendo’s, tablets, phones etc it’s popularity died but 8 years ago we re-established our Youth Academy and we are thrilled to currently have 18 youth members aged between 10 & 15 years of age.
Comeragh Cycling Club would like to wish all our Youth Academy members the very best of luck in the National Youth Road Championships this Sunday 16th August. The event is being hosted by Panduit Carrick Wheelers and the circuit is the Comeragh Cycling Club summer League race circuit out at Carrolls Cross on the Cork Road (We hope this is a good Omen). Comeragh CC entered a total of 10 riders (3 girls and 7 boys);
