Annaghdown Cycle raises €16,200 for Galway Hospice

The annual Annaghdown Cycle took place this year on 16th and 17th April.  This year the cycle took the route from Regan’s of Clonboo to Ennistymon in County Clare, where – after a well deserved overnight rest – the cyclists pedalled all the way back to Clonboo the following day.  All proceeds from this year’s cycle were donated to Galway Hospice.  Pictured at the presentation of €16,200 to Galway Hospice on 17th June at Regan’s in Clonboo, are (l-r): Winnie Farragher, Michael Flaherty, Breeda Feeney (CNS Home Care, Galway Hospice), Breda King (Home Care Manager, Galway Hospice), Eileen Regan (Regan’s of Clonboo), Michael Devaney (Volunteer, Galway Hospice), Sean Tully and Agnes Fox. 

A huge “thank you” to all the cyclists that took part, to those who sponsored them, and to Regan’s of Clonboo for their tremendous hospitality to the cyclists and back-up team at the start and finish of the pelethon.  The monies raised will be spent on the provision of Home Care and Day Care services at Galway Hospice.
