I dont really see the problem with this race - (although perhaps its not for beginners).
We left that venue for our own reasons and The Beast of the East has a fantastic name because of what We, Wicklow Tri Club have put into it from organisation to marshalling.
The route of this other race is also slightly different - taking in lough tay etc so its not exactly the same.
There is other races up that neck of the woods too - WAR etc example.
I cant say that I am a big fan of "Irish Triathlon" but either way its up to us to control what we can and that means avoiding the badly organised races while continuing to provide an excellent option that is our New Beast of the East (and the Aquathons too )
