Colm Hickey wins 2011 Grand Prix

Nov 29, 2011 [GP Committee] The 2011 Grand prix series came to a conclusion on Saturday in Santry Demesne. The O’Connor cup (sponsored by Colm Brennan) took place on a mild but windy afternoon. In all, 15 athletes toed the line, Ernie Ramsey was the eventual winner, with Darragh Cullen moving through the field over the course of the race to finish second just in front of Colm Hickey.

 

Colm did more than enough to ensure he was the winner of the 2011 series by claiming all 30 points on offer and winning the O’Connor cup. He wins the overall series by 22 points with Paddy Tuite in the runners up position for the second year in a row. Things were much tighter in the race for the Green Jersey, proving the mantra that every place counts over the series, with Philip O’Doherty taking the crown by one point, with Ernie Ramsey in second place.

 

Thanks to all the athletes, officials and supporters who played their part in the series and a big thank you to all the sponsors of the races in the series.

 

The Grand prix committee will meet to review the 2011 series, if you have any views or would like to make any suggestions, please send them to clonliffegp@hotmail.com or make them known to a member of the GP committee.
