Glenisland National School - New Role!
Glenisland Community Council would like to inform residents of Glenisland of their intention to turn the disappointment of the closure of our local school into a positive by using the premises as a focal point for the community. The best way we see fit to do this is to distribute a survey to all houses in the area. Using this survey we intend to put in place the requests of the community as best we can. We would appreciate everyone's co-operation in getting this project up & running as soon as possible. It is of the utmost importance to get as much feedback as possible as our aim is to build a community spirit that we can all be proud of. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

The club members have taken part in quite a few sportives in the recent months, such as Gran Fondo, Epilepsy Cycle, Pink Ribbon, Explore Mayo and most recently the Westportif & Gift for Life Cycle taking in beautiful scenery along the way.

Islandeady Cycling Club wish to Thank all who supported our recent Charity fun run in aid of the Melissa Patterson fund, €1200 Euros for this great charity was raised. The proceeds from our fun run will go towards encouraging disadvantaged children to take part in sporting activities. We had planned that Success for the event would be 150 happy participants - BUT we had in excess of 250 very happy participants on the day. The overwhelming feedback from everyone was hugely positive and everyone who took part thoroughly enjoyed their day - young & old.
We could not have completed the event without your support and good will - THANK YOU.
