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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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

The 2015 Great Railway Run was held yesterday (18th April) and attracted almost 600 runners this year. There were 247 in the 25k from Cork to Carrigaline, 237 in the 10k from Monkstown to Carrigaline and 100 in the 5k from Shanbally to Carrigaline. You can view photos of the event on our facebook page here. Most of the funds raised will be going towards the new Lions Youth Centre Project in Carrigaline with the remainder going to help other Lion’s Club charities and to support the Carrigaline Roadrunners Association. Over 100 volunteers were involved in the organisation of the event which ran very smoothly and received very positive feedback from many of the participants. Thanks to both the volunteers and participants for making the event such a success and helping to raise funds for the Youth Centre and other charities.
