Clogher Charity Cycle Getting Ready For The Road.

Speaking ahead of the Clogher Éire Óg’s Blood Brothers Charity Cycle, Club Secretary Eugene Mc Connell stated the Theme of the Charity Cycle “Blood Brothers” is really an apt name.
“We are all Blood brothers when it comes down to it. We will never know when either your or some one very close to you may need a pint of blood and if it’s to save the life of someone then they can be truly regarded as a genuine blood brother or sister. It’s hard to believe that over 94% of the population who are eligible to give Blood Don’t. A stark Fact but true one.
The club has organised their Charity Cycle this Sunday 21st October to help raise awareness for the need to give blood. Our club player John Mc Glone wouldn’t be alive today had it not been for a stock of his blood type being available to the hospital and the 16 units of blood he required saved his life.”
Continuing, Eugene stated that the interest in the cycle both locally within the parish and indeed throughout the Clogher Valley has been encouraging and there has also been quite a bit of interest from further afield.
The Charity Cycle goes ahead this Sunday starting with registration at 8.30am at the Eire Og club rooms. There are two routes on offer to the participants either 30 miles or 60 miles. Registration fee is only £10
A big plea goes out to anyone from the parish who would like to help as a marshall at the event or assist with refreshments to come along on the morning and play their part.
