I was very sad to discover that teh Tandragee 100 has been cancelled for 2010. As a stuanch supporter of the event. I first road at Tandragee in the 250cc class in 1968. I wish the Club and all the folks that work so hard to make the event happen each year all the very best. Lets make this great Irish Road Race Event continue in in fine tradition. Mal Kirwan :?
