The Carrigaline & District Lions Club Annual Cycle Classic takes place on Saturday, October 8th, starting in Carrigaline, heading along the Wild Atlantic Way to Timoleague, looping back to The Old Head Of Kinsale and returning to Carrigaline.
The 2016 event is again sponsored by Mr John O’Connor of Victoria Cross Cycles. The cycle classic is the club’s major fundraiser and is now celebrating its 25th year, coming from humble beginnings in 1991 when just 18 cyclists raised €2,500. Suppport for the cycle has grown steadily over the years and last year, approximately 150 cyclists took part. Over the 25 years, over €675,000 has been raised for local charities with the majority of the money raised being donated to cancer related charities. The proceeds of this year’s event will go towards a number of local charities including Marymount Hospice and the Carrigaline Lions Youth Centre.

For further details on the cycle classic contact Mark Ginn on 021-4373088.

Carrigaline & District Lions Club recently hosted the annual summer BBQ for the residents of the Lions Club houses at Carrig Iseal and Abbeyview.

The Minister for Defence ; Marine ; Food & Agriculture, Simon Coveney, TD, pictured with a Guard of Honour from the Irish Navy, before he performed the Official Opening of the Carrigaline Lions Club Youth Centre.

On Friday the 18th September, Minister Simon Coveney TD formally opened the new Carrigaline Lions Youth Centre. The opening was attended by over 200 guests including representatives from local organisations, schools and churches as well as local councilors and TDs.

This new 6,000 sq. foot landmark building was commissioned by the Carrigaline and District Lions Club and includes a youth cafe, activity room and IT room as well as offices and meeting spaces.

The landmark building was designed by Kieran J. Barry & Associates, Carrigaline and the main contractor was Vision Construction.

  • Astra Construction

  • Collins SuperValu Carrigaline
  • Cork Builders Providers
  • Cork County Council through its Community Grants Programme and the Area Engineers Office including the Area Engineer Madeleine Healy and her staff.
  • Dairygold
  • Irish Naval Service
  • Janssen
  • Kerry Group
  • KWP Print & Design
  • Musgrave Foundation
  • National Maritime College of Ireland
  • Patrick Coughlan

We are very grateful to all of these and to the many other companies and individuals who gave freely of their time and went above and beyond the norm to ensure that the project was a success.

We would also like to thank the following for their assistance with the opening event:

  • Carrigaline Pipe Band
