Tour De Ireland......
For those of you who don't know Stevie Finnegan Stevie is a member of Sligo AC and a regular member of the famous 7:57 club, Stevie has become one of the familiar faces in the running scene in Sligo over the past number of years, however running was not always Stevie's first love, and the truth be known it still isn't, Stevie who is a true Scot's man was a very competitive cyclist and won 2 stages of the very famous FBD Milk Ras in the 1980's, cycling as part of the Scottish team which went on to win the International Team event, this competitive side to Stevie has now carried over to his running and he is clocking some fantastic times in everything he competes in, be it on the road, on the track or in the fields during the cross country season, but it also has to be said that Stevie Finnegan is a true gentleman and a privilege to know. This was a truly super performance and merited been remembered by "Reeling in the years" so well done Stevie from all your friends in Sligo AC. I have attached the actual advertising poster for the event at the time and also the link below to the details of Stevie's famous wins. http://www.anpostmedia.com/Media/Ras_Archive/www.anpostras.com/event/fbdras_481.html
