Cycling club presents €3k to local
INISH Cycling Club and
friends have pedalled 100 miles around the peninsula
raising more than €3,000 for local charities.
The funds from the Inishowen 100 (i100) challenge
were divided between Ard Aoibhinn Alzheimer's Unit,
Carndonagh and Zest Healing the Hurt, Derry.

The club issued a
heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make their
recent fundraising event so successful including the
Ballyliffin Hotel and Philomena at the Wee Hall in
Culdaff for facilitating the food stops.
"This year again the support of Seamas and Terry
McElvaney was invaluable as was that of Paddy
Gillespie. Their generosity and good humour is not
taken for granted," said a club spokesperson.
"The club want to thank especially Michael McDaid
who captured the day again for us so perfectly. Of
course no journey can be completed without
sustenance, here a special mention to Caroline and
Donna, the lunch ladies and not forgetting the tea
ladies, Louise, Elly, Marylou and Joan.
"A final word of thanks to the cyclists and their
sponsors who really made the day a success through
their combined determination and generosity."
The club is already getting in gear for next year's
challenge on Saturday, May 6, 2017.
