On Monday, June 12th 2017 in recognition of this week being National Bike Week, Patsy
Brady opened his Cycling Museum to the public. As special guest for the occasion
Patsy had Eve McCrystal in attendance and she was a very popular celebrity with all
callers to the Museum. We did an interview with Eve and you can listen to it by clicking
on her image below.
Eve is a winner of Gold and Silver medals at the para-olympics in Rio and many other
titles. She is a great ambassador for the sport of cycling. She is a great role model
for women, not just as a sportsperson but as a full-time worker and the mother of
two young girls. Eve spent four hours at the Museum during which she posed for photographs,
signed autographs and chatted to the big number of visitors who attended. Her very
pleasant personality and easy manner impressed all who met with her. It was a wonderful
evening at the Museum and her presence added greatly to the excitement in and around
the Museum. Full marks to Patsy on his choice of celebrity for the event. However
another great in the world of cycling travelled all the way from Antrim to visit
the museum. Cyclists will know Gordon Parker, who was extremely impressed and delighted
to see the massive range of paraphernalia and unique cycling curios Patsy has amassed
over the years and the manner in which he has prepared them for exhibition.
Well done Patsy for presenting great moments of cycling history in the one place
and thanks to Michelle Murphy of Monaghan Sports Partnership for her assistance to
Patsy and to his family for their great support.
