Taking advantage of the long summer evenings, the Lucan CC, which has a long history with the 'Stagg Cycles', will stage three evening events beginning next Monday, June 13. Batterstown, Co. Meath, will stage the first event, where it is intended to use the Mullagh Circuit. Then it's back to the Phoenix Park for round two, and the final round on Wednesday evening will be in Batterstown with the more difficult Grange Circuit coming into play. The scheduled start time is 7:30pm for each race with the prize presentation taking place at Cafferys Pub in Batterstown.

All categories are welcome to participate, but the Lucan club would be obliged if stewards from the clubs in Leinster could be hand to help out.

This event is a welcome addition for the juniors who are gearing themselves up for the MDonnelly Junior Tour, which goes ahead in Castlebar for six days next month. The tour has opted out of Waterford and gone Westford for the first time in its 27-year history.
