Mulranny to Dublin
Coast-2-Coast cycle ride 19/07/2019 to 21/07/2019

Day 0: Thursday 18-07-2019

Seven of us set out for Anglesey to get the Holyhead ferry for Dublin (and we only just made it with 15 minutes to spare). We then have to drive across country to Westport and then on to Mulranny, a very long day indeed!

Day 1: Friday 19-07-2019

Well yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, but this morning is very overcast and the minute we set off from Mulranny it starts to rain. Welcome to the emerald isle.
