Letter from Chairperson on the Damian Lennon Cycle Challenge

02 April 2017

Damian Lennon was a lifelong member of Aghaderg GAC/Ballyvarley HC. 
He played football and hurling with the club, he managed teams and served on our Club and County Committee. He also played a huge role in the local Community Games organisation, at both local and county level. His commitment to sport, to young people and his local community was inspirational. 
I cannot recall a time meeting Damian when he hadn’t a smile on his face and a story to tell.

His sudden passing last year after a short and brave battle with pancreatic cancer has left all of his family and friends in the club devastated. 
Aghaderg GAC/Ballyvarley HC, in conjunction with the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, is organising a Cycle Challenge on 28 May 2017 to celebrate Damian’s life, to celebrate his love of sport, his love of community and fun loving attitude to life.
The Damian Lennon HQ Challenge will run from Croke Park to Aghaderg and the On Yer Bike Challenge will run from Scarva to Newry and back. A sponsored cycling jersey is being organised for the event and a ‘Just Giving’ donation page has been established at 
All funds raised will be shared between the club and the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.
