On April 14th 2022, Dickie Newell, a long-standing member of Cuchulainn Cycling Club in Dundalk, was involved in a life-changing accident on his bike. He came off his bike during a training spin and sustained serious injuries. He is paralysed from the chest down and has limited power in his right arm. He is currently in the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire. He will need respite care for the rest of his life. Before Dickie can return home, significant adjustments will need to be made to his house.
As a club, Cuchulainn is looking to raise much-needed funds to help Dickie and his family at this tough and challenging time.
With your help, we can ensure that Dickie returns to a home adapted to his needs.
We would be most grateful if you could make a donation to this very worthy cause.
