Cahir. Tour de Munster 2004 - Thursday Aug 26

The first proper stop. Soup and sandwiches had been organised in the Cahir House Hotel. After a little confusion on how to get to the car park, we dismounted and walked inside.

This was the first time I really got to see the Limerick contingent of cyclists. This was also when I got to see some of the, er, one day eveners. This also was the first time I'd seen some of the people I'd been training with for the past few months.

It sounds weirs, but remember the training kit. Helmet for the falls, glasses for the road spray. Usually dark tinted jobs. You end up recognising people not by their face but by their shirt, helmet and bike. Most of us were wearing their team shirts for the photos earlier in the day.

Soup - Veg. In fact, the soup seemed to follow us around the province, no matter where it was served, it was the same soup.

We drank, we talked, we paid and left.
