Six local cyclists will this weekend take part in an annual three-day charity cycle in aid of Little Angels Special Needs School in Letterkenny and the Donegal branch of MS Ireland.

Friday will see the cyclists depart Maggie’s Tavern in St Johnston at 7am on route to Annagry via Creeslough. Then, on Saturday they will be leaving Annagry on route to Killybegs via Ardara and on Sunday making the trip home via Donegal Town, Ballybofey and to Lifford via Convoy.

As previous years music will be provided in each village by Clement Clarke on the back of Tony’s gig-rig, where the locals come out in force to either sing, dance or recite a piece of poetry. The best way anyone can help is to come out to support us as the cyclists are passing their town.

Gerald Crawford one of the cyclists who’s grandson Darragh attends Little Angels explains: “It’s great to visit the school after the money has been handed over to see the new equipment that the children benefits from. We look forward to meeting everyone for another successful weekend.”
