Draw will be held at 7pm so dont delay.

Those registering on Sunday will try on cycle jerseys so we can order the correct size for all cyclists. Cyclists will also get information on training, insurance, etc and there cycle merchandise will also be available. So come along, register, relax and enjoy refreshments and food before you start your training programme. See Facebook for further details.

If you cannot cycle the whole 100 miles but are still keen to raise money for the Club then please talk to us.

Business Sponsorship names and logos are needed in the coming weeks for the Cycle jersey and a team of people under Shane McGeary and Frank Donnelly are looking for your support.

Dinner Dance.  The Clubs Dinner Dance and Presentation Night was held in Armagh City Hotel on Friday last when we paid tribute to the winning teams of 1988 Junior Championship, and who then went on to win the 1990 Intermediate Championship. It was great to see the two captains, Tony Murphy (1988 ) and Micheal McParland (1990) leading their teams on stage.
