On Friday 25th of August 2017, the Galway Cycle 2017 came to a close, with a cheque presentation in Brady’s Bar, Maynooth.

It has truly been an honour to have been the Galway Cycle 2017 chosen charity.  The commitment, training, planning, and support the Galway Cycle Committee, Volunteers and Cyclists put in to prepare and complete this event is staggering.

We will be forever grateful for the work each person put in and for the valuable and life changing funds they have raised, and to all those who donated – all monies raised will be of enormous benefit to the Paediatric Patients in the NRH.
