Here are some pictures I took on the 1979 Tour of Ireland 8 day stage race. The race finished with a TT up St. Patricks Hill in Cork. The overall winner was Ron Hayman of Canada.

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.

A savage climb somewhere in Ireland!

Massive crowds were on the climb willing to help riders in trouble

The start of the TT was at the bottom of the climb, starting straight onto the climb
