PEDAL power is helping the South Sligo Community Park development.

A group of 34 volunteers cycled from the Aviva Stadium, Dublin, to the local Tubbercurry pitch.

Funds will go towards new facilities at the Mountain Road.

It is a joint venture between South Sligo AC and Real Tubber FC.

South Sligo AC Chairman, Alan Guckian said: "It was a great event.

"After two days of cycling, we got a fantastic homecoming ."

The new development will include a playing pitch, running track and multi-functional astro turf area.

It will be situated on a 4.1 acre site leased by the Sligo/ Leitrim Mayo ETB-formerly the VEC-to the local community.
