From the archive: Navan Road Time Trial, 1959

Here's another set of pictures from Dad's photo archive. I wasn't able to caption a lot of these so any help with identification of riders would be great.

The photos here were all taken at a 50 mile TT, held on the Navan Rd course, just outside Dublin, sometime in the summer of 1959. The course started and finished in Ashtown, beside the Phoenix Park Race Course and took riders out to the turn near Navan and back.

Clicking on a photo will open the set in a gallery.
