In 2012 we lost our good friend… Seamus Kennedy. Amongst his many achievements - notably four national titles and his 1978 Rás win, he is know for competing in the Ras every year between 1965 and 1981 and also in 1983 which would turn out to be his his last.
As a mark of respect and to recognize his contribution to the sport of cycling the club is honored to promote the annual Seamus Kennedy Memorial cycling event in association with our club sponsors.

Sunday, 19th June will see Dunboyne Cycling Club holding its fourth annual Seamus Kennedy memorial race.
We have a full calendar of events for the day, commencing with youth racing on a shortened circuit starting at 10am sharp, with sign on from 9am at the Dunboyne GAA/ Athletic Club, Rooske Road. Race will commence from here with a neutralized start.
Senior racing will commence at 12-midday from the Dunboyne bypass with an A1 &A2, A3, A4 & ladies race.
Sign on is also at Dunboyne GAA/ Athletic Club (Rooske Road) from 10am.
A1-A2 race will be 6 laps, A3 4 laps and A4 3 laps of the 20km Seamus Kennedy circuit (Dunboyne – BlackHall – Kilcloon – Carton – Dunboyne).
This is the only race in Leinster the weekend before the National Championships so a large turnout is expected.
Last year's race was won by Damian Shaw, who just seven days later went on to become Irish national road race champion, so the omens are good!
We look forward to seeing you there.
