DUBLIN hurling selector, Richie Stakelum, will be up on his bike this week.
Thirty-four cyclists from Kilmacud Crokes are cycling from Malin to Mizen to raise funds for Breast Cancer Ireland and the club.
The trip begins tomorrow and it will conclude on Sunday. The big launch took place at Páirc de Burca last Friday night.
The first stage will take the riders from Malin Head to Letterkenny. The Thursday trip is from Letterkenny to Ballyhaunis.
Then it’s Ballyhaunis to Lahinch. From Lahinch to Kenmare. After that, it’s Kenmare to Mizen and journey’s end. It’s a tough one, but for the courageous Crokes cyclists it will be yellow jerseys all round. More details on the Kilmacud Crokes website.
FODH a huge success
OLYMPIC gold medalist, Michael Carruth, was among those that took part in the Friends of Dublin Hurling Golf Classic at Castlewarden last Friday.
The fab four who went home with the blue jackets were Ciarán Toner, Aidan McNamara, Darragh McIntyre and Luke Bellew.
Kevin’s won the Best Club award, while Caoimhín Tuite hit the longest drive. Tom Ryan was nearest the pin. The green jacket has always been a comfortable fit on Tom.
FODH chief, Michael O’Grady, thanked everybody for their continued support for the event which is the organisation’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
Among those that sponsored the tee-boxes were Desmond’s Steakhouse in New York City. So now you know where to go for the butter and spuds when next in the big apple.
