Special thanks to Eugene Brady for his work on setting up the Doyle Cup race along with many weeks of agonising over the handicaps! Also special thanks to Paddy Parrot for sorting out all the prizes and taking some great photos which are available here

Also thanks to all involved in setting up the tent, providing refreshments, marshalling the course, officiating at the start and finish lines and tidying up afterwards.
