INSPIRATIONAL: Chalfont St Peter family and friend to ride to Ireland for Shane

 Published on: 12th August 2022   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Chalfont St Peter mother and her friends are taking on a gruelling cycling challenge from London to Ireland in memory of her son.

Margaret Corrigan and her daughter, Megan,  will be joined by 18 other people as they cycle from London to the island of Achill, off the coast of County Mayo in Ireland.

The challenge is in memory of Shane Corrigan who died in 2018 from sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), only three years after he was first diagnosed with the condition.

As well as completing the challenge the group are hoping to raise £150,000 for SUDEP Action and Epilepsy Ireland.

The challenge was set up as Shane has made the journey from London to Achill several times and he is also buried there.

The epic ride will take place over a week from August 20 to 27 and for Margaret it will be made harder for the fact she hadn’t ridden a bike for more than 30 years.

She will be joined by other Chalfont St Peter residents Ron and Stef Fagan, Suki Channa and Grainne O’Donnell.

Margaret said: “Shane is remembered for his larger than life, determined personality. He had a wonderful smile and you could pick out his infectious laugh from across a room.

“Due to his kind nature and caring ways, he had a brilliant and supportive group of friends.

“The team of cyclist are going for the ultimate challenge in his memory.”
