Fantastic start of Ironman 70.3 in Dun Laoghaire this morning with Cllr Ossian Smyth.

The race features a 1.2-mile (1.9KM) swim from Sandycove, home to the famous Martello Tower, in the clear waters of the Irish Sea in Dublin Bay, before taking athletes on a spectacular and challenging 56-mile (90KM) bike course. The course travels through some of the most scenic areas in the region, including County Wicklow, home to the Wicklow Mountains National Park and its glacial lakes, rivers and abundant natural beauty. Athletes will take in stunning coastal views and weave their way through the streets of the charming seaside town for the 13.1-mile (21.1KM) run, before finishing  with Dún Laoghaire Harbour and Dublin Bay as the backdrop.
