GAA CLUB PEDALS FOR PIETA
Enniskerry GAA Club’s ‘Pedal for Pieta’ was a huge success, with 81 cyclists taking part – 50 more than last year.
Organisers thanked the Powerscourt Arms for the use of their venue and for the delicious food after their cycle.
The community pulled together, with donations of fruit by Liam and Mel Corrigan, as well as many volunteers acting as registrars, support drivers, water stop volunteers and road markers.
The team had hoped to attract 50 cyclists this year so to end up with 81 was fantastic.
They continue to collect sponsorship and will then announce the total sum raised.
The day included 80km and 40km routes, starting and finishing in Enniskerry and taking in some spectacular landscapes.
There were designated water stops with free food and drink to refuel, and post-race celebrations.
All sponsorship will be divided equally between Enniskerry GAA and Pieta.
In 2006, Pieta House opened its doors in Lucan, County Dublin and since that day they have seen and helped over 30,000 people in suicidal distress or engaging in self-harm, and established twelve subsequent centres across Ireland.
