In a unique initiative, the county senior panel and team manager, Glenn Ryan are undertaking a massive fundraising bid in aid of Longford Social Services. On December 10 and 11, the panel plan to cycle the equivalent of the famed 4,000km Route 66 road trip in the US on special gym bikes positioned on a viewing area at Longford's Market Square. It is hoped that all the clubs in Longford will participate in a cycle on Sunday 11th, where it is anticipated that each club will arrive in their club colours between 1.30pm and 2pm. We hope to have a good representation from Dromard in this cycle and if you are interested in taking part please contact our club secretary Emmet Masterson at 0858494157.
