• Galway sports stars Ollie Canning, Sean O Domhnaill and Ja Fallon are taking part in the 148km first stage of the ‘Race The Rás’ charity cycle in aid of GOAL and The Irish Cancer Society from Dunboyne to Portumna on Sunday. The three will begin each of the stages three hours before the professional riders begin their leg of the tour, which finishes in Skerries on Sunday week.

Other GAA stars who have confirmed their participation include Sean Og Ó hÁilpín and Brian Corcoran, ex-Kilkenny star DJ Carey, Clare’s Tony Griffin and ex-Irish rugby international, Mick Galwey.
