Trip Away

Due to a clash with the very popular Charleville 1/2 marathon the planned club outing to the Kilmore Quay 10k has been scrapped and replaced with the fabulous looking 
Ballycastle County Mayo

Céide fields 1/2  marathon or 10k....right along the Céide field coastline and cliffs, 100% off road. 1/2 = €37.50 and 10 = €29. WHEN?..... OCTOBER 12th....that's the weekend AFTER Cork to Cobh. Clear your diaries for that weekend folks. This is an annual club outing, a fun time for members to get away together. This trip will be subsidised by the club....subsidy depending on numbers going. The idea will be to leave Midleton at say 3pm on Friday 11th, get to Balycastle for around 8 after a meal stop half way. We will have a rough programme for the weekend and aim to get back to Midleton around 8 on Sunday 13th. Accommodation and travel details once we have committed numbers.

The starting point is a DEFINITE expression of intention to travel to Edmond on 086-8323267.

Come on Midleton AC members and fly the colours on the Céide fields out west!

Message from Christine Murphy

Reminder that we need volunteers to help with the Relay for Life on 24/25 August – there will be a sign-up sheet at training on Monday evening (cricket pitch) so that we can schedule people for the 24 hours. If you can’t make training please message Christine on 087 9873617 with the times that suit you as we need to get the timetable sorted this week.

If you are not around on the day, you can still help by sponsoring a candle bag – these will be on sale again on Monday evening (€5). We will have some illustrators on hand to decorate for you if you wish or you can take away to personalise with photo etc. if you prefer. Idea is you dedicate the bag to a loved one affected by cancer.”

Can we include the link to the relay facebook page as well please if people want more detail.

Thanks all
