Murphy Surveys Cycle for Crumlin a great success

Murphy Surveys charity cycle for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin was a great success and we are thrilled so many people came out to support us on 25th July in Kilcullen, writes Caitriona Hanly.

The over-all target is to raise €15,000 and we are well on our way, having reached close to €7,000 on the day. Suppliers, clients, family and friends have been a great support and we are confident we will reach the target by the end of August. This charity has touched the lives of so many here at Murphy Surveys and we are delighted to fundraise for such a worthy cause.

Over 120 cyclists including staff, friends, and members of local cycling clubs joined us on the day. Liam Walker and the members of Kilcullen Cycling Club helped marshall the event and kept everyone safe.

Kildare Rose Ailish Brennan (pictured above with Diarmuid Murphy, Ray Murphy and Niall Murphy) also took part in the cycle. Local businesses including Energie Fitness, Naas; Burkes Pharmacy, Kilcullen; The Westgrove Hotel, Clane; Cross’s Centra, Kilcullen; and Fallon’s Restaurant, Kilcullen, all provided the raffle prizes.

Five students from IBHT were there to provide post cycle massages – which was a great relief to many, especially the amateur cyclists!

We also want to thank Scats Bouncing Castles and Marquees Nationwide for helping us make it a family friendly event.
