Catching the Train to Waterford after leaving the Carrick boys on the road to home. Had hoped for a LUAS but got a TGV instead.

Turkeys O’Donnell decided to give a demonstration on how best to use a clothes line mid spin as we set off in search of Brian Kenneally.

The roar went up ‘Whos been sitting in my chair’ and Turkeys flew away, almost forgetting his Gillet in the process. We never found Kenneally.

Then tragedy struck.

No Picture here.

A poor dog was knocked down and died in my hands when we all stopped to help it.

To end on a good note. This bike was incredible today. Super stiff yet soaked up the back road to Roubaix like it was on smooth tarmac. 10/10 so far……
