My name is Conor Gallagher I’m 20 years old and I’ve just finished my second year studying in UCD. I’m very excited to be lining up for the Donegal Ultra 555 this year. Racing in Donegal is always a special experience for me because my Granny grew up near the foot of Mamore Gap. I finished third overall in the 2017 Rás Donegal and I managed to win a few stages of the Errigal International Youth Tour back in the day, so it’s only right to round things of with the Donegal Ultra 555. I’ve also represented Ireland at international events across Europe but this will undoubtedly be my toughest challenge to date. Can’t wait to get the show on the road.
