Gerry Brannigan Memorial

Gerry Brannigan was a very popular member of Orwell Wheelers and the IVCA who died suddenly in October 2006 aged just 52 years.

A group of friends came together and formed a committee that ultimately decided to organise a charity cycle to support Gerry’s family. The first Gerry Brannigan Memorial Cycle took place in November 2006 and we were overwhelmed with entries with over 320 riders taking part. In addition to entries, sponsorship cards were also distributed and returned and through the generosity of cyclists, their friends and families, a large sum was donated to Gerry’s family.

Each year, we all hear of deaths or serious injuries in our cycling community, be it from an accident or illness and we all wonder if we could be of any help or assistance to cyclists and their families. With this in mind, we established The Gerry Brannigan Benevolent Fund in 2007 to support them through difficult times.

The Gerry Brannigan Memorial Cycle takes place every November out of Clonee, and is run as a joint effort between several clubs, with Orwell providing marshals on the day.

The Gerry Brannigan Memorial Cycle for the 2016 season will take place on Sunday the 18th of October 2015 starting at the Grasshopper Inn, Clonee, Co. Meath. (Please note that because of this event, there will be no organised cycle from Joe Daly's on this date. We hope to see you all there instead.)
