Eagle AC trip to Eyeries 5mile race…Sat 11th Nov 2017

Eyeries-5-Mile-2017-advert-250pix-highThe Eyeries 5 mile road race takes place on Saturday 11th November 2017 at 2.30pm and Eagle AC are organising a coach to take us to the race.

Last year over 20 ‘Eagles’ travelled to Eyeries and a fantastic time was had by all (see report by Vivian Foley here). The coach will leave the Viscount Bar in Bishopstown at 10.15am.. and will arrive in Eyeries in plenty of time for the start of the race.

Following the race there will be ample time for something to eat and some light refreshments before we settle down to watch the Ireland vs Denmark soccer match and then we will depart Eyeries by coach at 10.00pm arriving back at the Viscount Bar for approximately 12.30am.

Travel arrangements are also available for those not interested in the match and wishing to return earlier.

One of the main organisers of the Eyeries 5 mile race is our own Mark Gallagher and he assures us that a great day will be had by all in this most beautiful, wild and picturesque village located on the Beara peninsula. The cost for Eagle AC members is just €10 and this will include the race entry, bus, match tickets and even some light refreshments after the race.

To book your seat please contact Pat Twomey at ptwomey152 AT gmail DOT com before October 31st.

As places will be limited please book your seat early!!
