Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes 12th March 2012
Tir Chonaill Gaels won four London titles at the first ever London senior Scor on Saturday night in Ruislip, and will now represent the county at the Connacht finals, which are being held on Saturday 24th March in Elphin, Roscommon.
Winners included the set dancing team of Clair Barrett, Victoria Egan, Kathleen McLoughlin, Sarah Mills, Jennifer Neighbour, Caroline Boyce, Angela O'Connor and Noreen Smith. Caroline Reegan won the Solo singing section; Gareth McGreevy won the Recitation with a wonderful story relating to the All-Ireland final day off last year. Finally the ballad group also won with Ryan Higgins, Paula Daly, Caroline Reegan, Kathleen McLoughlin and Gareth McGreevy.
It was a great effort from all of those that competed and we want to wish our team the very best in Roscommon.

A number of TCG members are doing a charity bike ride in September 2012 (5th - 9th September) called the Euro City challenge. It’s a four day bike ride from london-Amsterdam-Breda-Brussels covering just over 300 miles in four days. It starts on a Wednesday morning finishing in Brussels on the Saturday and we return to London on the Sunday with euro-star. You can do this bike ride for what ever charity you wish and you will have to raise £1,700.00. However, all your costs for the bike ride are included in this, but also there is an option just to do it without raising money for charity at a cost if £670.00. Also note there is a £149 registration fee. If you are interested, please get in touch with Stephen Mc Loughlin.
