An Evening With Sean Kelly
Lakeside Wheelers are delighted to announce that the great Sean Kelly is coming to Mullingar for a Questions and Answers evening to be held in the Greville Arms Hotel on Friday, March 22nd.

This is an amazing opportunity for all sports fans to come along and meet one of the true legends of world sport and arguably, Ireland’s greatest ever sportsman. Kelly’s career spanned fifteen gruelling years in the Pro Peloton during which he was the world number 1 rider for four consecutive years. He has competed in thirteen Tours de France, won a record seven consecutive Paris-Nice Classics and he also achieved his Grand Tour ambition by winning the Tour of Spain (La Vuelta) in 1988.

Do not miss this unique chance to hear his personal story about the highs and lows of professional cycling and a sport which still dominates his life.  Watch out for more details and information on ticket sales in next week’s notes.

Tickets are now on sale at a cost of €20 each which includes entry and refreshments on the night plus a chance to cycle with the Legend on a spin as he will be joining us for a club ride the next morning. Doors open from 8.30pm. Tickets can be bought at the reception in the Greville Arms Hotel or from several club members including Mick Reynolds, Mark Monaghan, Joe Duffy, Eamon Hogan, Muirna Walshe, Ronan McNamara, Charlie Sheridan and Shay O’Toole. 

The format on the night will consist of a video and slide show to recapture some of Kelly’s amazing career as well as an interview followed by a Questions and Answers session. This is a very unique opportunity to listen to and speak with one of the greatest cyclists and sportsmen the world has ever seen so please get the babysitter booked and get your tickets bought. Lakeside Wheelers is your club; please support this very special evening.
