By damian Fri 4th May

“Drumquin is on the final countdown to its’ two day “Trip To Tory” cycle event. Many of the riders had not “graced” a bike for many years. The progress they have made since the first run in January is amazing with over 800 miles clocked up.
With the fundraising target reached all further donations received in the final week will be going directly to the nominated charities.
The riders and organisers have put a tremendous effort into raising funds and preparing. With the completion of the last of the gruelling 2x50mile training runs on Saturday and Sunday. “The Hills Above Drumquin” have been tamed leaving only “The hills of Donegal” left to conquer. The cyclists will be leaving at 7:30am on Sat the 5th to return on Sunday at 6pm for the home coming party. Enda the chairman of  the cycle subcommittee and John the club’s chairman thanked the team leaders, cyclists and their families, helpers for their commitment, support and enthusiasm.
They also thanked the jersey sponsors: Sallys of Omagh, P Fahy & Co, Pro-Drive, Extreme Cycles, Cassidy Windows, CostCutter Drumquin, Bradleys Pharmacy, Galaxy Facilities Management and the team Sponsors: Buchanan Oil, Donnelly Group, Foothills Bar&Resturant, Hayes Fuels, KES, Lynchs Vivo, National Fuels, Lynchs Vivo, Mellon Country Inn, W.J McLauhglin, McKennas Vivo and Shane Mimnagh’s Barber Shop, for their generosity. They paid tribute to the sprit of community that had turned a chat at a kitchen table into reality. Following a humorous review of the leadership, organisational, qualities the teams were called forward to receive their Jerseys from Oonagh McGirr representing the events main sponsor Sallys Of Omagh bar and nightclub. There was a great buzz in the social cub as each of the riders was called forward to receive their hard earned cycle jerseys to tumultuous cheers and rounds of applause. The last task the cyclists have left to do now is to learn the words of the songs “The Hills Above Drumquin” and “The Hills of Donegal” and look forward to a mighty nights craic on Sunday.
