As the sport evolves and we deliver upon our vision of an island enriched by cycling, Yvonne’s expertise will be invaluable.”


“I also want to thank Dave Smyth whose major contribution to the development of cycling in Ireland is both hugely valued and appreciated.”


Speaking following her appointment, Yvonne Nolan said: “I am delighted to join the board of Cycling Ireland and greatly look forward to contributing to the strategic direction and governance oversight for the sport.”
