In May 2018 the Emyvale Cycling Club held its annual Grand Prix event and this includes
Juvenile races. The Emyvale Club is one of the leading Cycling Clubs in Ireland successfully
promoting youth cycling and this event attracts cyclists from all over the country.
This year there were competitors from Cork, Galway, Mayo, Donegal, Belfast, Tyrone,
Fermanagh, Armagh, Cavan, Meath, Louth, Dublin, Wicklow, and other counties which
in an indication of the popularity of this event countrywide. Emyvale District Credit
Union has for many years sponsored the Juvenile races and has been instrumental in
promoting youth cycling in the Monaghan area and it is the support from the Credit
Union which enables the Emyvale Club continue organising the Juvenile Races. Our
photo above shows Emma McKenna, representing the Credit Union, presenting the 2018
Sponsorship and it is accepted by Dara McKenna and Micheal McKenna, officers of the
Club. Michael is also the Treasurer of the National Youth Academy. Michael and Dara
both expressed the appreciation of the Club for the sponsorship and thanked the Credit
Union for its support of the youth taking part in a very healthy pursuit.
