Day 1 - June 27: Time Trials: Elite Men, Women, Juniors,

Healion tops men's TT

By Gerard Cromwell

Former Murphy & Gunn pro, Paul Healion, went home with the Irish national time trial title in Raheen last night. The Dubliner faced serious competitors despite defending champion Nicolas Roche (Crédit Agricole), former winner David O'Loughlin (Pezula) and recent Route Du Sud winner Dan Martin (Team Garmin / Chipotle / H3O) all opting to keep their powder dry until tomorrow's road race, and David McCann riding the Tour of Korea for Giant Asia.
