Donegal Oil


Meet Declan Barr, who will be joining Team Donegal Oil in the 2017 Donegal Atlantic Way Ultra.


Declan has been running and doing some cycling over the last few years. He has entered & completed in local adventure races in the last year & has enjoyed it.

This will be the first time that Declan has taken on the challenge of an all cycling event & he is looking forward to the 555km around Donegal’s coastline with the Team Donegal Oil crew and team of 8 people.

Declan saw a post on Facebook a few months ago when Team Donegal Oil posted that they were looking for people to join their team for the Donegal Wild Atlantic Way Ultra Race & he jumped at the chance.

He would never have taken on a challenge like this by himself & when he spoke to Arthur McMahon of Team Donegal Oil, he knew that he could do this with the support & encouragement that he got.

The training is going great & they have really jelled as a team and not only is Declan really looking forward to this cycle challenge, he is ready to #haveago!
