Last Saturday saw the triumphant return to Dromahair of 42 cyclists who completed the fifth annual Delma Cavanagh Memorial Cycle from Limerick to Leitrim.

The group left Limerick on Friday morning last in terrible weather conditions and navigated their way through the midlands before arriving in Roscommon where they recuperated ahead of the second day of travelling.

The weather improved considerably for the second day of travelling as the group made their way towards Carrick-on-Shannon and then continued the journey home as they passed through Drumshanbo and Drumkeerin before reaching Dromahair at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.
