A number of our cyclists will be in New York for Leitrim’s opening Championship game and no doubt will be seeking the support of the Aughawillan and Leitrim Diaspora in New York. Best of Luck to all involved in both games, if you’re in the Big Apple send us in your pictures!

Dublin – Aughawillan Sponsored Cycle – There’s just 10 days to go to May 12th and the 150km cycle from Castleknock to Aughawillan. A big welcome to Eilis Quinn, Mick Quinn (Sean O’Heslins) and Padraig Holohan (Drumrielly) who are participating in a support role to our cycling team.

In the final weekend before the cycle, there are still some fundraising efforts. On bank holiday Monday, Noel Gilheany is hosting a Pizza evening at his house in Swanlinbar from 3pm. There will also be a raffle, with a top prize of Sunday lunch for two in McNean’s restaurant. You’re asked to confirm your attendance in advance. There will also be a collection outside Tesco & Supervalu Ballinamore, on May 4th & 5th.

Thanks to all those who have donated thus far, we appreciate any and all donations and sponsorship that can be made to the cyclists and we ask that you support and encourage all 20 cyclists in any way possible in their preparations.
