1956 was created by Dave Mc
The subs book for 1956.

Two of the new arrivals this year were each to go on and win National titles in their respective careers; Basil Whelan was the first, but most significant for us now was the arrival of a very young Noel O'Neill. February 27th 1956 is the date he paid up and officially joined the club for the first time, so his 60th anniversary is only a few months away!

This is a classic video worth watching!

The 1956 Bray Circuit Race video shows the pre race prep and banter, riders being led through the town by a pipe band and some legends of Irish cycling including Orwell member Noel Hammond. There looked to be a great crowd watching - especially down at the seafront where the finish line was.

Thanks to Aidan Hammond and Paul O’Donohue for sharing.
