Traffic delays expected as marchers head to Armagh Tigers – Armagh I charity event

Former Northern Ireland goalkeeper Pat Jennings is among those backing the charity walk

Traffic delays are expected in Armagh tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon as dozens of walkers take part in a charity event.

The 100 Mile Walk for Life from Dublin to Dungannon was organized by Armagh Tigers Charitable Trust.

The final 10 mile stage begins at 1.30pm at Armagh City Hotel and finishes at Donnelly Jaguar Land Rover, Dungannon.

Organizers said there will be traffic delays between the Armagh City Hotel and the Moy Road and across the Moy to the Donnelly Group showroom in Dungannon.

The charity aims to raise thousands of pounds for two causes: the World Vision Korogocho Slum School project in Kenya and diabetes research led by Queen’s University Belfast.

Kieran McAnallen, Chairman of Armagh Tigers, said: “We have been delighted with the response to date and our charitable efforts have attracted sports greats such as Tommy Bowe and Pat Jennings, as well as our local clubs from GAA, Rugby and soccer.

“Walk for Life donations will go directly to building a school in Kenya and reaching out to people living with diabetes closer to home.”

Professor Tim Curtis, of Queen’s University Belfast, said he was delighted the Armagh Tigers had chosen to raise awareness and help with fundraising efforts.

“At the Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine at Queen’s, we train the next generation of researchers to improve patient outcomes and develop new treatments for people living with diabetes and its complications,” he said. declared.
