Tribesmen Go Wild

The Galway Football Squad will be going ‘Wild’ this coming weekend to raise funds for MS Ireland and the Tribesmen Supporters Club. The squad will attempt to cycle all 2,750 kilometres of the Wild Atlantic Way on Saturday December 17th. All funds raised will be distributed between MS Ireland and the Galway Tribesmen Supporters Club.


But instead of taking on the iconic route in the depths of winter there will be a number of high profile locations throughout the county selected where players will jump on static spinning bikes to try and reach a target per cyclist. Venues will include Supermac’s at The Galway Plaza in Kiltullagh, Eyre Square and Headford Road as well as Joyce’s Supermarkets, Elvery’s, An Púcan Bar, The Eyre Square Shopping Centre, The Corrib Shopping Centre and Taaffes Bar on Shop Street. Live updates will be broadcast on Galway Bay FM from the venues to see if the target of 2,750km will be hit.


The services MS Ireland offer include physiotherapy, professional counselling, general support, advice & guidance for people with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and friends. We are the only charity locally and nationally in the Republic of Ireland to offer these kinds of support to people. Like many charities, the demand for services is increasing on a month by month basis so the funds raised through this partnership will be very much welcome. Mike Crowe of MS Ireland said that all funds raised for MS Ireland will go towards MS Ireland’s Western Service.  “MS Ireland are delighted to have been chosen as the charity partner for this event. The lads have taken on a gruelling challenge to help raise vital funds to support our services. All monies raised will go to the services provided by our Galway Office,” he said.

All monies raised for Galway GAA will go directly to The Galway Tribesmen Supporters Club who in turn aid the preparations of the Galway Senior Squads for the coming season. Galway manager, Kevin Walsh, said that the team were looking forward to the event. “On my behalf of myself and the management team, I’d like to thank Galway people for their support this year. This event on Saturday represents a great opportunity for us to show our commitment to MS Ireland while raising some much-needed funds,” he said. “The GAA has always has a culture of community involvement. The positivity that we are experiencing within the team is something that we hope our supporters will get an understanding of and support these 2 good causes. We are looking forward to Galway supporters continued support in 2017 and it would be great to have the stand in Pearse Stadium full of Galway supporters for the June 11 clash with All-Ireland finalists Mayo.”
