IT was looking dodgy for a while such was the extent of the fog, but it lifted for the hordes of cyclists setting off from St Pats GAA Club on Saturday morning.

Hi-vis jackets were the uniform of the day as around 130 participants made their way to Castleisland and back for the Jimmy Duffy Memorial Cycle.

Jimmy was 67 years old when he died as a result of smoke inhalation after fire at his home on Church Street, Blennerville, in January 2010 and a cycle has been held in January for the past number of years in his memory.

The cyclists returned to tea and refreshments in The Windmill Bar in Blennerville, while later that night there was a music session in Quane’s to remember the avid musician and cyclist. Scroll down for photos…
