Carrickmacross Cycling Club
Carrickmacross Cycling Club is south Monaghan’s premier cycling club formed 24 years ago in 1989, and in addition to being one of south Monaghan’s leading cycling clubs, it is also one of the biggest sporting clubs in the county with over 70 members.
The club caters for cyclists from all walks of life from the recreational cyclist on a coffee shop run, leisure touring riders and the Lycra clad road racer competing in open races.

In addition the club also has very close ties with Carrick Aces Athletic Club, with many people being members of both.
To cater for all enthusiasts the club runs a number of cycling events throughout the year. Like any cycling club worldwide the cornerstone of Carrickmacross Cycling Club’s activities is the weekend ride. On any given weekend up to 3 different groups are hitting the roads of the north east. In addition to year round weekend touring and training rides, the summer sees a large number of members road racing. During the shorter days of winter, the cyclists move indoors to spinning classes in the Phoenix Centre, Carrickmacross.

Carrick UTD FC
Carrick United A.F.C was set up in July 2013 when when it was realised that there were many young men from the town who just wanted to play football on a competitive basis. All 25 players signed up for the season and raised monies to launch the club, the team managed to get a sponsor from a local small business and applied to play the Cavan / Monaghan league. All concerned designed the jersey and the team crest to give it a unique Carrickmacross touch.
The team consists of young men from the Carrickmacross area and their goals are to maintain to develop the club and to involve an under age aspect to the club.
Their ethos is to be united, Le Chéile, to be proud of oneself and where they come from, and develop as strong members of our community. A reflection of the nature of the men involved is that they insisted in raising the awareness of suicide and in particular the work of SOSAD in this field.
Managers: Pat Cusack, John McLaughlin and Jason Donnelly.
Secretary: Jason Donnelly.
