O’Brien Wins Again
Sean McKenna of Team Ireland was the overall winner of the Kerry Group Ras Mumhan cycle race after four intensive days of racing over the Easter period in Counties Kerry and Cork. McKenna laid the foundation for overall victory when he finished second on the Coom an Easpaig stage in South Kerry on Sunday. The twenty-one year- old’s accumulative time was eleven seconds better than runner-up Bryan McChristal.
Paudi O’Brien of Osborne Meats/McCarthy Cycles racked up his third stage win on the Killorglin/Beaufort/Killorglin 117kms which included nine laps of the ‘Donal McKenna circuit in the town today. Bright sunshine brought out the crowds to watch the finale of a well organised event with main sponsorship from the Kerry Group.
