Frank’s Mission from St Ciaran’s Ballygawley to St Ciaran’s Zambia

Last Wednesday night I got the opportunity to visit the newly built Tyrone GAA centre in Garvaghey to take a photo of an extraordinary feat of one man all in the name of charity. On the 22nd March this year, local Ballygawley business man Frank Mc Nelis will make the journey from St Ciaran’s College, Ballygawley to a new nursery school that is almost complete in Mulenga, Zambia by motorbike.

Tyrone’s Mickey Harte and players Stephen O’Neill, Peter Harte, Niall Morgan, Ciaran Mc Ginley, Aidan Cassidy, John Devine and Aidan Mc Crory showed their support to Frank’s mammoth mission which will see him travel over 10,000 miles, across 20 countries in approximately 8 weeks.
