Fort 2 Fort Charity Cycle Sportive 29/3/2015

Finbarr OShea - F2F 2015-2

The Fort 2 Fort Charity Cycle Sportive took place last Sunday, March 29th 2015. This event was a unique challenge for all levels of cyclists, which began at the Trabolgan Holiday Village outside Whitegate in East Cork (near Fort Davis / Carlisle) at 10am and finished, for most, at Fort Meagher / Camden in Crosshaven in West Cork.

This challenging event saw cyclists of all abilities participate in the 60km, 85km and 125km optional routes. The routes covered the full loop of Cork Harbour crossing the River Lee by the Cross River Ferry outside Cobh and finishing at Fort Meagher / Camden for both the 60km and 85km distances. The challenge of the 125km was  a return spin to Whitegate.

Now in its fourth year, the purpose of the cycle was to raise funds for the Mercy Hospital Foundation, Lions Club of Cork and Camden Fort Meagher Restoration. ECCG members were on hand to capture a flavour of the event, participants and supporting spectators along the route. Well done to all.

ECCG Mini Studio at Market Green SC


East Cork Camera Group were delighted to join forces with East Cork Rapid Response on Saturday 14/12/2013 to help with ECRR's collection at Market Green Shopping Centre, Midleton.

Members of ECCG set up a 'mini studio' in the centre and invited shoppers to have their portraits taken in exchange for a donation to the voluntary pre-hospital emergency service. The public responded very generously and over 230 portraits were taken throughout the day raising over €500 for this extremely important local service.

Many thanks to management at Market Green and the many people who contributed to the collection. Photos will be sent to all in the coming week.
