The last of the Irish Nationals took place the past weekend but wet weather spoiled the fun. A number of round have been run in the year but Monaghan has been subject to unfortunate weather conditions consistently. The second round here was rained off mid way and unfortunately the rerun was also. Most of the guys where sad as the track team had made the place more comfortable and consistent, the track would have made for a great race final.
