Mark Nugent was in a serious accident last April
A cycle is being organised on Saturday, August 13 in aid of Maynooth man Mark Nugent.
The well known footballer, hurler and cyclist was in a serious accident on April 19 and now needs to carry out extensive renovation of his home to adapt to wheelchair use.
Friends of Mr Nugent have created a 'gofundme' account which has, to date, raised in excess of €25,000.
The cycle will take place on August 13, starting at the Boy's National School in Maynooth at 9am — and proceeding as far as the Hill of Tara and back.
The distance is 60kms or a more family-friendly 20kms.
