Apollo Cycling Team
Prior to Apollo Cycle Team, there were two Local cycle clubs in Lurgan each with approximately 15 or so members, these being Clann Eireann and Lurgan Road Club. A proposal was made in 1995 to merge them so that a more cross community approach to cycling and racing could be made. With both these clubs already having their own success’ and community support the idea to merge was rejected. Not deterred by this, a small group of cyclists namely Myles McCorry, Vincent McKenna, Marty Rogers, Andy Layhe and Kieran Martin decided to form a new club as had been previously proposed. At this point, the then Lurgan Road Club decided to keep the notion of merging with Apollo on the back burner. Apollo was first registered as a club in 1995 and the club jersey was first worn at the Newry 3 Day in 1996 by Myles McCorry.
