KILMALLOCK CYCLING CLUB: Last weekend once again saw groups out on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Saturday saw our elite group hit the road at 9am from the old Neodata carpark and while the speed is up so is the craic. Sunday once again saw a group leave at 9am and it was great to see John Higgins back out on the bike after a break of 8 weeks due to a collarbone injury. We have beginners, leisure and elite cyclists so whatever your fitness level is we are here to help. All are very welcome to join in, nobody gets left behind. It is great to see the numbers turning up to enjoy a nice leisurely spin where there is always a good story and a good laugh had by all. It won’t be long now until the season of ‘Sportives’ and ‘Racing’ gets under way so don’t delay, come along and have the craic while getting fit into the bargain. The confirmed date for Kilmallock Cycling Clubs “HUB TOUR” is Sunday April 14, so stick it in your diary and get pedalling as this is truly a spectacular day out for all cyclists.

FRIAR’S GATE THEATRE: Fred and Alice returns to Friars’ Gate On Thursday January 31 and Friday February 1, @ 8pm, CallBack Theatre present Fred and Alice, written and directed by John Sheehy writer of the hugely successful Set in Stone.  Fred and Alice is a quirky love story played at a blistering pace.  It’s not easy to get by in this crazy old world.  But Fred and Alice have discovered that all you really need are 2 tennis rackets, a freezer full of ready meals and an immature coping strategy.  The play features Ciaran Birmingham (Game of Thrones) and Cora Fenton (Deception TV3) . 

American Buffalo by David Mamet - On Friday February 8, @ 8pm, Magic Roundabout Theatre Company presents American Buffalo by David Mamet.  Starring Darren Maher, Stefan Barry and Ger Meaney.  A coin collector stumbles across a valuable buffalo nickel in a small Chicago junk shop and purchases it for only $90. Later coming to believe that the coin was worth far more than this and feeling he has been unfairly taken advantage of, Don, the shop owner, becomes determined to steal the coin back. He elicits help from Bobby, a young friend, and Teach, a paranoid and violent braggart. The three conspirators fancy themselves as businessmen pursuing the legitimate concerns of free enterprise. In reality, however, they are merely small time crooks, and all of their plotting amounts to nothing in the end. www.friarsgate.ie/063-98727

SOUTHSIDE WHEELY WHEELERS:  Southside Wheely Wheelers had our post Christmas/ pre-season party on Saturday in the Central bar in Bruree, while we are in the middle of pre-season training and some of us are still trying to shed some turkey we are also a social club so as a fiction writer once put it it’s not about bike- well for a few hours at least. A big thank you to the Central Bar for the great music, food and hospitality, a great night was had by all. Our next night out will have a lot to live up, so where to next? Spin training continued this week on Tuesday and Friday in Fit4Life gym in Kilmallock with club members spread across two classes each night with Altus and Aaron putting us through our paces, this shedding the excess Turkey is tough going but will be of huge benefit when we are away on our first tour of the season in Blarney. Our official Sunday spin was cancelled this week due to the party the night before but a brave few ventured out in tough conditions on Saturday, out cycling were Declan McCarthy, Jerry Reidy, Ger Finn, Tadgh Murphy and John Carey. Spin training continues this week on Tuesday and Friday , if you have a spot booked and cannot make it can you please leave Paul know the morning of the class that you can’t make it so he can fill that spot. Sunday training will resume this week with a reasonably flat route taking in a well deserved coffee stop half way around. We will be leaving at 8.30 and as for all our club spins we depart from the car park behind Kilmallock Cycles and there will be a group and a pace to suit everyone.
