Conditions were wet and damp for the 10mile (16km) TT. It started at Felda, turned at CBellingham and finished just short of Felda. There was a strong headwind on the way out, with a tailwind and crosswinds to contend with on the way back. Cuchulainns Rosemary Gibson and Mairead Holden put in strong performances but finished outside of medal contention. 
Only one (scabby) second separated Ardees Johanna Rogan from a silver medal in the Leinster TT. Great results for the Ardee girls.

Celines victory follows on from her win at the Challenge Galway Half Ironman at the weekend. Celine was 4th lady over the line and won her age group with a fantastic time of 5hours 17mins.

Eve McCrystal and Katie-George Dunlevy took part in the 3rd round of the Invacare Paracycling TT on the same course/evening. They were 3rd fastest overall out of 49cyclists with a savage time of 21mins 13secs.
