Blazing Motorbike Charity Run Table Quiz

K.Shanahan, B.Shanahan and two well known local 'Hell's Angels' types, plus excellent fundraisers D. Colton & G. Kennedy.

Blazing Bikers is a club, who along with the help and support of some very good friends have for the last 15 years organised and participated in Cycling and Motorbike events in aid of the National Council for the Blind of Ireland along with other charities for the Blind, including the Irish Guidedogs, Fighting Blindness and Deaf Blind Ireland.

This club has raised over €450,000 over the last 15 years in aid of all these Charities.

On the May Bank Holiday Weekend,  2011, Blazing Bikers will take on a Charity Motorbike Road Run in a Challenge attempt to cover all 32 Counties. The Challenge, which will begin in Thurles on Friday, April 29th and continue until Monday May 2nd, will attempt to cover 1,000 km over the three days in aid of  that worthy cause ‘The National Council For The Blind Of Ireland.’

I bet my very good Moto Guzzi friend Patrick Hayes in Fremont CA, who is long due an Email from me, wishes he was here for this event. Maybe we can  tempt the Loughmore exile to come with the promise of a bed!

However, prior to this event a Table Quiz, in aid of ‘The National Council For The Blind Of Ireland’ will take place in the ‘Monks,’ (A popular and very excellent watering hole.)  in Mitchel Street, Thurles, on Friday March 11th next, at 9.30pm sharp.

Tables of 4 persons costs €20.00. A Raffle with some excellent prizes will also be held, so come prepared to enjoy, what promises to be a really special event.
