Gleaner tipster Orville ‘Clarkie’ Clarke has swept both sections of the Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) tipsters’ competition’s first bi-monthly race for 2016. Spotting five winners on the final raceday last Saturday, ‘Clarkie’ moved away from closest rival Jimmie of the Star to beast him by four winners (46 to 42) to secure the $20,000 prize. And the veteran tipster, who was champion in 2014, also captured the wagering section with a healthy plus $1,093.24, clear of IRIE FM represented by last year’s champion tipster Howard Abrahams. As a result, Clarkie picked up another $20,000 for a grand total of $40,000 donated by the promoting company. He leads the competition with 46 wins, ahead of Jimmie (42), Howard Abrahams and Cable Sport Network (Francisco ‘Linky’ Mills) jointly in third on 41 wins each.

The two lads set off from their homes in London on Saturday, and are currently in Letterkenny.Four intense days of cycling has seen the lads face many highs and lows, but the finish line is almost within touching distance.Their legs are aching, their knees are sore, but these hardy men from the island are on the final straight.They’ll leave Letterkenny and head to Arranmore Island via Glenveagh National Park on the final leg of their epic journey. The lads have raised a huge amount of money for both charities, and were warmly welcomed by members of Donegal Down Syndrome when they reached the Square in the Letterkenny earlier this evening.Any donations would be greatly appreciated, so if you’d like to support Peadar and Eoin, then you can by clicking on either of the links outlined below.https://www.idonate.ie/1219_donegal-down-syndrome-.htmlhttp://www.justgiving.com/LondontoArranmroePublican Jerry Early, has promised the duo, he will have two beautiful pints of Guinness waiting for them when they arrive on the island.Well done lads. 🙂 DONEGAL MEN SET TO COMPLETE EPIC CHARITY CYCLE FROM LONDON TO ARRANMORE was last modified: May 28th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Arranmore – LondonCHARITY CYCLEDonegal Down SyndromeEoin BoyleFeaturesnewsPeadar Boyle
