This Sunday, June 9, sees a team of cyclists from Comline Ireland, one of country’s leading aftermarket parts suppliers proudly adorn the company’s colours to take on Ireland’s world-famous Wicklow 200 cycling challenge.
Ashley McGonnell, Stephen McGrane, Caroline O’Neill and Lee McKenna, all employees at the Monaghan based company, came together back in January to begin training for the annual challenge.

Warehouse Operative, Lee McKenna commented: “I have always been a keen cyclist, but my inspiration to tackle this iconic course was sparked by my colleagues Ashley, Stephen and Caroline all of whom undertook the challenge last year.”
“We have certainly trained hard and put the hours in, I am hoping this, the breath-taking scenery, and the great comradery we have as a team will be enough to get our blue and yellow jerseys safely over the finish line.”
Damien Larkin, Comline Ireland’s General Manager stated: “I am extremely proud of the team and truly admire their determination. They have the whole Comline family behind them, and we wish them all the very best of luck as they set about achieving their goal.”
Established in 1982, the 38th Wicklow 200 will start in Bray, Co. Wicklow and is organised by the Irish Veteran Cyclists Association.
