Man cycled from Dublin to Westmeath along “the fantastic Royal Canal way”


A man with very strong Westmeath and Mullingar connections, Michael Power, son of the late Donal Power and his wife, Barbara of Ballinagall and Brockagh, Knockdrin, Mullingar, set new standards for cycle trips last week-end, when he rode his bike all the way from Burton on Trent in Staffordshire, England to his ancestral home close to Lough Owel.
