Aughawillan GAA Club Notes 17/05/2018

Dublin – Aughawillan Sponsored Cycle – Last Saturday, our 20 cyclists plus support team travelled from Castleknock to Aughawillan, 150km in total to raise funds to develop and upgrade the playing surface of the main pitch. This 8.5 hour journey took them through Dunshaughlin, Navan, Kells, Virginia, Cavan, Killeshandra, Newtowngore and Ballinamore, before arriving back to Aughawillan GAA club, where they were greeted by a large crowd of family, friends & supporters to congratulate them. A massive thank you to all those who were at the field to welcome the cyclists back to Aughawillan, the supporters who came out along the way to encourage the cyclists and everyone who sent them off in style in Castleknock that morning. A mention also to the support team who travelled with the cyclists – Gene and Eugene Maguire who led the crew along the way, the medic Marie Quinn, the mechanic Christy Creamer and Ciaran McTague who was also on hand, Charlie, AnnaMay and Niamh Kelly who were at the stops along the route to provide snacks and water for the cyclists and Donal Quinn & Gallogy Catering who were at Aughawillan pitch to provide refreshments after the cycle. The cyclists along with family & friends gathered in Jackies’ bar later that evening to celebrate their achievement and have a few well-earned refreshments!

Thanks to all those who encouraged, sponsored and donated to the cycle in the weeks leading up to the event, all of which is much appreciated. A full list of sponsors and acknowledgements will be made shortly. Check out the Aughawillan GAA Facebook page for pictures of the day!
