Dromin cy­cle raises €11,000 for the hospice

Mid Louth Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS - Hu­bert Mur­phy’s look at life in Mid-Louth hmur­phy@drogheda-in­de­pen­dent.ie

THE in­cred­i­ble work of those be­hind the an­nual Dromin cy­cle for the Ardee Hospice Home­care group has to be ap­plauded.

Each sum­mer they de­part from the Vil­lage Saloon in Dromin and take to the high­ways and by­ways of the re­gion.

Dozens and dozens of rid­ers take part - thank­fully Benny Grogan doesn’t have far to travel for this one! - and all in aid of a great cause.

It’s been on the road for nine years now and about €111,000 has been raised in that time.

Tess Con­nolly is a stal­wart of the event and a great col­lec­tor.

No doubt there’s a big bar-b-que be­ing planned in the Saloon for next year when it marks 10 years.
