Here are some pictures I took of the Mullingar GP (Date 25/05/1978). At the time I was in the Les Jeunes Cycling Club and pictures are mostly of club members. However, it brings back memories of the strong cycling links in the town.

My apologies as these pictures are a bit mixed, please don't contact me looking for pictures, I will post more pictures here when I get some spare time. Even converting the pictures on this page took a fair amount of time.

Please enjoy the pictures that are already posted on the site.
