Kilcullen link to National Cycling podium

A cyclist with Kilcullen family connections won silver in the Irish National Cycling Championships yesterday, writes Tom Horan.

Angus Fyffe (left above), grandson of the late Tom and Carmel Byrne, formerly of Silliot Hill, achieved his medal on the final day of the Championship, in Wexford.

The U23s were incorporated into the Senior Men's race, with Michael O’Loughlin riding hard and fast to win Gold, Angus Fyffe the Silver, and Ryan Reilly followed up with Bronze.

Riding with Newry Wheelers Cycling team, congratulations to Angus on his superb race and podium finish — a proud moment for Angus's family, friends and many supporters in the Kilcullen area.
