CYCLE RACING: On Thursday 11th August a cycle race will take place in the Abbeyshrule area between 7:00pm and 8:30pm. The race will consist of 3 laps of a 7 mile circuit taking in Abbeyshrule and Taghshinny. The cyclists will be travelling at speed so motorists are asked to be very careful and take heed of instructions given by marshalls. (If necessary slow down and pull into the side of the road.) Racing begins in Abbeyshrule village at 7:00pm and all are welcome, so come along and enjoy the spectacle
