We have decided to add a for sale section to the website which can be accessed at the top right of the site. People are always buying and selling swim, bike and run gear and this gives them a handy forum.
Stephan Ryan has already posted a new unused sailfish wetsuit to the for sale section

Congratulations to Dermot Radford on his deserving nomination of one of the local honours at this year’s highly respected Canon Hayes sports awards. Dermot couldn’t be a more deserving candidate for the award. His dedication on and off the bike has been critical to the progression of cycling in Tipperary town over the last 3 years. The club has gone from a small number of 10 to over 70 members and is always growing. From an individual level Dermot dedicates a lot of his time to training which has resulted in him having some great performances on the national scene. At a club level Dermot has been one of the most important people in the re-emergence of the Tipperary wheelers cycling club, with direct involvement in the creating and running of the club website, social media accounts, club kit, and tours the club organises. Dermot has also developed one of the most unique cycling club leagues in the country with a variety of racing and time trials where anyone can win. The beginner can race the best with a chance to win; no other club provides such a unique opportunity. The club league has been one the great strengths of the club and long may it continue and grow in numbers.
It was a fantastic day for the club in the sprint triathlon in Monkstown today. Rory Devitt came 8th overall and 3rd in the 20-35 category with a superb time of 1:10.
In the ladies event all eyes were on the former Olympic medallist Sonia O Sullivan. Clare exited the water in front of Sonia but it didn’t take long for Sonia to fight her way to the front of the ladies race on the bike and passed Clare on the way. However Clare showed her customary tenacity and fighting spirit by re-passing Sonia on the bike and taking the race to her. The two ladies fought all the way around the challenging bike course passing each other 3 times. When it came to the run as you would expect O’ Sullivan excelled but so did Tipp Tri Clubs Clare, only losing a minute to the former Olympian and coming 3rd overall one place behind Sonia. Clare also came 2nd in the 20-35 category. Jayne O Conner was also racing for the club and put in a fine performance with a solid time of 1:30.
Another great day for the club and well done to all involved
