The 2018 Delma Cavanagh Memorial Cycle concluded in Dromahair on Saturday last with 38 cyclists safely completing the 280km journey from Limerick to Leitrim.

Conditions on Friday proved to be particularly challenging for the cyclists as they negotiated the roads through the Burren in Co. Clare and wet weather before reaching Tuam in Co. Galway where they were able to recharge after nine hours in the saddle.
