Cycling Ireland extend condolences on death of Alan Towell

Cycling Ireland extend condolences on death of Alan Towell

Cycling Ireland was saddened to hear of the passing of Alan Towell, a member of Banbridge Cycling Club.

Alan joined the club in 1973 and was an active member of the club for the last 40 years. Alan competed for the club throughout the 1980's, winning the Ulster Junior Road Race and representing Northern Ireland at the Junior Tour of Ireland. He particularly cherished being part of the winning Banbridge CC team at the 1982 NI Road Race Championships alongside Seamus Downey, Noel Teggart and David McCall.

As a volunteer Alan contributed immensely to the club. He assumed the role of team manager for events such as the Tour of Ulster. Since 2008 he took the role of events secretary, managing weekly club league races and being a key member of the open race committee.

To honour his contribution to Banbridge Cycling Club he was awarded the Belmont Cup as club person of the year in 2015. He was due to receive an award from Armagh, Banbridge & Craigavon Council in recognition of his lifetime service to sport.

Alan's funeral service will take place on Wednesday, 30th January at 2pm in Bann Road Presbyterian Church, Dromore followed by internment at Dromore New Cemetery, Mound Road, Dromore.

Cycling Ireland would like to pass on their condolences to Alan’s wife Angela, daughters Felicity & Christina, extended family and all at Banbridge Cycling Club.
