Product description


Truly unique. A sprawling story that speaks as much about Ireland as bike racing. --Books Ireland

This splendidly illustrated book is a fine record of an important and unique sporting event which will be cherished by arm chair athletes as well as cycling enthusiasts. --The Leinster Leader

The book is worthy of a place on any bookshelf in the land. Once started, it'll be hard to leave out of your hands and for God's sake don't pass it on. You'll never see it again. --Sunday Tribune

About the Author

Tom Daly has had a long interest in sport since playing with Kerry minor footballers. In 1979 he completed the first solo circumnavigation of Ireland by kayak. Always a cyclist, he did not race until he was 42 and won an All-Ireland Veteran s team medal. He won a National Masters Track title in 2011 and raced in the World Masters Track Championships. Intrigued by the complexity of racing and the romantic spirit of the Rás, he set about documenting its history. Little did he realise the scale or richness of the story.
