Cycling star in Donegal

Philip Deignan 0814

Letterkenny professional cyclist Philip Deignan was in Donegal this weekend on a welcome break.

But he still had time to go for a spin around his native county and attend a special interview and question and answer session with cycling enthusiasts in an Grianan Theatre.

Deignan (31) is with Team Sky and his biggest target next year would be to realise the dream of competing in the Tour de France.

Joining him on his visit to Donegal was top women's cycling star Lizzie Armistead, who has won Olympic and Commonweath medals as well as world track titles.
