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!
