The Quinn Spin Around ireland
In June and July 2022, Eddie (74) and Annie (73) Quinn, will begin a month-long fundraising challenge to cycle around Ireland. The couple, both retired teachers, will be cycling over 1,000 kilometres to raise funds towards GOAL’s Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
“We thought the fact that we’re a good age might help people of any age to realise that they can do something like this themselves. We have planned our start from where we live here in Kildorerry, Co. Cork. We’ll be heading towards Limerick, and then Clare, Galway, Mayo, Donegal, Derry, Limavady, Belfast, and down the east coast of Ireland to Waterford and back to our home in Cork. We’ll be doing maybe 50km per day for 4 weeks and expect to cycle well over 1,000 kilometres come rain, wind or shine.” - Eddie Quinn
"One way or another, we’ll raise some money for this great cause. In the end that is what it’s all about – to help people in Ukraine whose homes are being destroyed."
