Get Active At The Annual Jimmy Duffy Memorial Cycle

Posted by


TIME to get active again after the Christmas/New Year period and what better way than to achieve this than by getting the bike out for a cycle.

The Jimmy Duffy Memorial Cycle takes place Saturday, January 13 at 11am from St. Pat’s GAA Club, Blennerville.

The event is held annually to remember the local musician and keen cyclist. Jimmy was 67 years old when he died as a result of smoke inhalation after fire at his home on Church Street, Blennerville, in January 2010 and a cycle has been held in January for the past number of years in his memory. Last year around 130 cyclists took part in foggy conditions.

The cycle will travel to Castleisland town centre and back home followed by refreshments, tea and coffee in Quanes Bar Blennerville.

Unfortunately, due to the provision of Insurance and Ambulance services, a fee of €5 per person to a maximum of €15 per family will be charged on the day.  Registration will commence from 10am. This is a non-profit fun cycle led by various pace cars.

Enquiries to Maurice Hanafin at (087)2998206 and George Poff at (087)6814799. The celebrations will continue on Saturday night with anniversary Mass in Curraheen at 8pm, a music session in Quanes Bar, where food & refreshments will be served.
