Saddle Up 

Rathcline Senior, Minor and Ladies clubs are delighted to announce the return of ‘Saddle Up for Rathcline’ for 2020. Building on the massive success of the event in 2019 in improving the facilities at Clonbonny the club has embarked on very ambitious plans for 2020. The club this year, with your support, is going to grow and enhance facilities for the club’s junior members. The club will be unveiling their ambitious plans within the next few weeks.    

A main fundraiser for this project is the ‘Saddle Up’ and that will take place on Saturday next 12th September. The cycle route will be from Lanesboro along the Royal Canal up to Mullingar Pewter and back to the club house in Clonbonny. The cycle is over 120Km and there will be the option of doing the complete cycle or a 15Km or more relay stage. Teams of     4 costs €50 per person. Bicycles will be provided for those on the relays there will be return journeys back to your car.  

The club is hoping that the cycle will have a unique part to it by it being the first to be able to cycle across the new walkway/cycleway. Presently the Born na Mona workers on the project are working very hard to be able to provide a route across.  However, there is a huge amount of work to be done and all we can hope is that there will be a fine weather week ahead to give the workers the chance at finishing the route.            

If you cannot do the cycle and would like to contribute to the cycle you can do so on the Go Fund Me page using the following link
