Due to a large funeral taking place in Stradbally today there is a change to the first part of today’s route. The route will now go from Castlecomer via Swan and Timahoe to rejoin the original route approaching Portlaoise. See new map below.

Once we rejoin the original route the race will enter Portlaoise which is by far the busiest town to be visited in 2021. There is a lot of road furniture on the route so please familiarise yourself with the route advise riders to take care. Thanks.
