One of our most loyal and dedicated club members Liam O’Connor is calling on all Abbeyside / Ballinacourty members, players, supporters, friends and cycling enthusiasts to support a Fundraising Cycle which he is organising on Saturday August 4th. Liam is organising the cycle from Limerick to Abbeyside to raise much need funds towards the running and further development of the club. As you all know the club has had huge success on the playing fields last year and all our club teams and ladies represented the club with great pride throughout the year. The club would not be able to run as smoothly as it currently does without the huge volume of volunteers who give so much of their time to coaching teams, by working on committees and doing countless tasks in fundraising and all other events run by the club. The facilities in our club have been brought to a new level in recent years thanks to the generosity of all in our Parish who give very generously when club people come calling at their homes, work places, shops and businesses to raise funds to help pay for projects such as the refurbishment of the dressing rooms, installing state of the art floodlights and generator to run lights, the erection of a state of the art ball alley to improve hurling skills and the purchase of almost 8 acres and the developing of the third pitch which will cater for the needs of the club teams for many years to come. We would like to thank all those people who have dug deep into their pockets to allow the club to be able to provide all these amenities. Liam is calling on any who would like to join him on the cycle to let him know in the next few weeks. The cycle will cater for all levels of cyclists and will involve a trip of around 85 to 90 miles. Please contact Liam or Michael to let them know of your interest and meetings will be organised to let people know of what it takes to be a part of a huge fun cycle. Liam can be contacted at 0851191908 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Michael can be reached at email@example.com or 0877682068.
