Lakeside Wheelers Christmas party and annual awards night was held last Friday night in the Greville Arms Hotel. As usual it was a well supported occasion and with cycling in somewhat of an off-season everybody in seasonal mood and ready to enjoy the celebrations.

The annual awards are a big part of the club social calendar as is the choosing of club President for the coming year. Those lucky enough to be selected for awards were Nuala Nolan (Best Newcomer), Patrick Little (Most Improved Rider) and Eamon Hogan (Club Person of the Year). Congratulations to you all and best wishes for 2018.

Eamon was a very worthy and popular selection for the most coveted award of the club. He has been at the forefront of practically every event the club has hosted over the last few years and is always available to help out. More recently he has been associated with the junior section of the club with involvement in Sprocket Rocket and the Youths Racing team. Well done Eamon and very well deserved.

Prizes were also awarded to those who performed well at the recently held Hill TT organised by Mark Monaghan. This event had faded into the background over the last few years so thanks to Mark and his team for reviving it. The winner was Aaron Wade, in second place was Andy Richmond, followed in third place by Brendan Kiernan.
Finally it was time to announce the name of our Club President for 2018. No change for the moment with Donie Kelleher agreeing to serve another term so well Donie and best of luck for the coming year.

Once again, thanks to all members who attended and congratulations to recipients of those much sought after awards.

All the Presidents Ladies. Donie Kelleher with Mary Taffe, Carmel Buckley, Claire Malone, Cathy Horohoe, Liz Hoctor, Cathy O'Toole and Louise McCarra.
