About me fein

(Me and my wife Karen McCrystal and Son Rían)

My name is Bryan McCrystal. I am a former Soccer player turned Triathlete!

I am a full time Jeweller in Baldwins. I custom make mainly Engagement Rings and Wedding rings. Baldwins are a family run business that is its 3rd Generation. I am lucky enough to be that 3rd person. Established in 1955 we have been serving the public quality product for quite some time…

Since I could walk I have played Soccer. Graduating from my local side Bellurgan Fc and then to senior level at Dundalk Fc I was spotted by Leeds United. I signed for Leeds United in 1998 and played youth and reserve team level for 3 years or so.  Also making a few appearences for Ireland at Youth Level. Unfortunatley things didnt work out and I came home in 2001 and continued to play League of Ireland and Irish League. I enjoyed spells we Dundalk Fc, Newry city Fc and Dungannan Swifts. Between Clubs I suffered several Knee ACL & cartilage problems that brought a halt to my playing career in May 2007.

The same year in October I competed in the Dublin Marathon as a ”keep myself fit” attitude. I completed it in 2 hours 58 minutes.  Fed up with running alone I joined My local Setanta Triathlon Club

Since 2008 I have trained and competed as a triathlete and have enjoyed some great times and a quick transition from a footballer to a triathlete.

In my first season I raced all distances and qualified for the World Championships in Florida after a successful age group postion in th Uk 70.3. Unfortunatley I couldnt make it.

From there and up to the present I continue to compete and train hard and design the odd Diamond Ring… 😉

    A memorial race is not the place for a DQ.
    Caroline wouldn’t have wanted a DQ handed out. Maybe a quiet warning.
    The event should be a celebration of her talent and in her memory.
    Maybe not a NS event.
    A wider view from the officials may have been better.
