Our History

Dunboyne Cycling Club has gone through many guises over the years, but was originally set up as the Cycleways team by Philip Cassidy and Brain & Shane Connaughton in 2001.

The original team was Philip Cassidy, Phillip Finnegan, Aidan Crowley, Eugene Moriarty, Adrian Hedderman, Thomas Lavery, Shane Connaughton and Mark Cassidy.

In 2002 the team was boosted by the addition of international rider Raymond Clarke. In 2002 they won the County Team prize in the Rás and in 2003 Stephen O'Sullivan was a major signing (who has remained with the club to date) and was ever present in the Rás team winners noted below - as well as the National Team champions in 2011. 2003 was also a year the team won the County Team prize.

In 2006 and 2009 Dunboyne Cycling Club again won the County Team prize in the Rás. In 2007 they achieved 3rd place in the overall (County Team) after Brian Kenneally joined and subsequently won two stages. In 2008 they attained 2nd place in the County Team prize as well as Stephen winning the County Rider prize.

Once again in 2009 the County Team prize was won, with Brian Kenneally taking the overall County Rider prize.

There have been many other notable members since its inception, including three previous overall Rás winners; notably Philip Cassidy, Seamus Kennedy and Brian Connaughton. Previous stage winners include Brian Kenneally and Stephen O'Sullivan.
