Stage 5: Monaghan – Blackrock – Sunday 21st May

After a ceremonial start in the centre of Monaghan town, the riders will make their way through the towns of Ballybay, Shercock, Kingscourt, Drumconrath, Ardee, and Castlebellingham before passing onto a slightly tweaked and extended finishing circuit in Blackrock. The riders will complete 4 laps of an 11.1km circuit before they become men of the Rás 2023. Stage 5 also features one cat 3 climb at Meath Hill en route to Blackrock. After last years thrilling finale, more of the same is promised in the beautiful Co. Louth seaside town this time around.
