We will take the N8 (Old Dublin Road) as far as the Horse & Jockey where we will turn left onto quiet country roads heading for the village of Moycarkey and onwards to Holycross. Turniing left as we enter Holycross village we will make our way via Tubberadora (passing the commemoration monument to Tipperary's first All-Ireland Hurling Championship win) and through the village of Boherlahan (Location of the Charles Bianconi Family Memorial Chapel) before making our way back to Cashel.

I joined the Cashel Rock Pedallers in 2014. Since then I built up my distances, from an initial 5km in 2016, completing a 170km on the 2012 Olympics Road Race Course! I have also completed many more Sportives, including all four Great Dublin Bike Rides. If I can do it at nearly 70, so can you!
Another bright, sunny Sunday morning as we set off from the City Hall Plaza on Main Street. Heading out of town and onto the old N8 Dublin to Cork main road at the motorway roundabout. As we head out to the Horse & Jockey it's hard to believe this was once one of the main arteries in the country. Hardly a car to be seen.
Turning off the N8 for Holycross, via Moycarjey village, with not a car in sight and only the sound of the birds to keep us company, it was a joy. Arriving in Holycross we paused for a few moments to capture the Abbey in its glory.
Back on the bikes it was onwards to Cashel via Boherlahan. Arriving back at our starting point, we took the time to enjoy a leisurely coffee and chat to review a lovely ride on a Summer's Sunday.
