THE Bracker 100km Fundraising Walk came to a successful conclusion on Sunday at the Bracker O’Regan Monument.

Joining the event organiser, our Club Chairman, Billy Ryle on the 4km last stage of the 100km walk were regulars Timmy Slattery, Denis and Liz O’Regan, Martin and Carmel O’Regan.  Also present were Mairead Fernane and Tim Guiheen.

A few anecdotes and memories were recounted at the Bracker Memorial; Denis O’Regan recited a poem written by his brother, Tommy O’Regan in memory of the late Martin “Bracker.”  Mairead Fernane gave a rendition of the Austin Stacks poem, “The Boys from the Top of the Rock.”

Since the walk began on Friday 17th July there has been a strong social dimension to the walk but it was all about raising the money to build a path with disability access around Austin Stacks club pitch perimeters.

So, Billy is appealing to all Austin Stacks members and supporters to dig deep and make a donation to the fund.

He is also requesting all Rockies to share the link with as many people as possible.  Many thanks to all who have supported the campaign so far, with over €2,300 raised so far.

Every single donation, big or small, will be gratefully accepted and will help to make life a bit easier for those who want to enjoy the games in comfort. The new path will prevent footfall damage on the pitches and will facilitate disability access to the far terrace in Connolly Park.
Please donate and share the link,
