IRELAND

An Rás wouldn’t be an Rás without the participation of our own Irish team.

Showcasing some of the best up and coming Irish talent and future prospects, the Irish team is always one to put in a big performance in its home event. No less should be expected in 2022 as they aim to fill the shoes and follow in the footsteps of the big names that went before them.

Race Director Ger Campbell when asked about the teams' participation said "the Rás certainly wouldn’t be the Ras without the Irish team and that is no less the case in 2022. The Irish team always acquits itself well and we don’t expect anything less this year” he added “we think that this team has the prerequisites for both stage and overall honours, we just have to wait and see how they assess their fellow competitors and adapt their game plan according to how the race unfolds"

The team line-up includes:
• Rory Townsend
• Dean Harvey
• Archie Ryan
• Adam Ward
• Paul Antoine Hagan
