The Leinster Wings took part in an annual motorbike ride out today (Sunday 29th September) in aid of Ireland's Children's Hospice, LauraLynn. The run was organised by family and friends of 4-year-old, Emily. (Read Emily's story here.)
After meeting for breakfast at McDonald's on the Kylemore Road, 11 GoldWings joined about 200 other bikes at Maxol Service Station on the Longmile Road. The ride out set off towards Dublin City Centre passing Heuston Station and along the North Quays where it regrouped at the North Wall. From there, the bikes headed across the East Link Bridge through Sandymount and Blackrock to join the N11 at Cornelscourt and on into Bray where all 200 or so of them parked up on the seafront. Here, there was a stop for about 20 minutes (just enough time to enjoy a bag of chips or an ice cream!) before heading out of Bray via the Southern Cross Road to join the N11/M50 all the way to the Family Fun Day at St. Brigid's GAA Club in Castleknock.
There was a collection among the Leinster Wings on the morning of the run and a total of €115 was donated to the event on behalf of the club. Thanks to all of our members who turned out today in support of this great cause!
