Armoy 2014 - a Super Success...
The Armoy Club and all its supporters must be congratulated for hosting a fantastic week of biking fun and action around the tranquil village of Armoy. The feature race, to culminate the whole event was the 'Race of Legends', and was won by none other than local hero Michael Dunlop. A fitting tribute indeed as Michael is the nephew of the late Joey Dunlop MBE who with his close, late friends Mervyn Robinson and Frank Kennedy inspired the Armoy Club into developing this marvelous event.

What a fine job everyone involved has done and lovely to see both Michael and his brother William (sons of another racing legend - Robert Dunlop) doing so well, with William winning the 600cc Race on Friday evening. Good luck to them and all the competitors who have impressed everyone with their racing skills.
