There's less than two months to go till the inaugural Ironman triathlon in Galway.
As reported on Afloat.ie last year, the City of the Tribes was chosen to host Ireland's first ever Ironman 70.3 event on 4 September.
Thirty-five qualifiying slots at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Florida are up for grabs in the event, which comprises a 1.9km swim in Galway Bay, a 90km bike ride through Connemara and a 21.1km run through the city streets, finishing at Eyre Square.
Individual registrations are now closed for the race, but some slots are still available with charity teams. For details visit ironmanireland.com.
Dun Laoghaire will play host to two new and exciting events this coming August.
The first annual Dublin Bay Taste & Music Fest takes place at the Peoples' Park from 26-28 August.
Pitched as a 'back to basics' celebration of Ireland's culinary heritage, the weekend will feature a 'boulevard' of chefs doing live demonstrations using the finest of local ingredients - as well as guest chefs from San Francisco providing the best of US west coast cooking.
Earlier in the month, on 1 August the inaugural DLR Bay 10k road race kicks off near Dun Laoghaire DART station.
The runners will follow a route that takes in Seapoint, Monkstown, Sallynoggin, Glenageary, Sandycove and Glasthule.
