Update: It is hoped that Eddie will be met by a convoy in Newport tomorrow evening at 6.15pm. There will be a parade via Tonragee and Currane arriving at Davitt Park at approximately 7.30pm/8pm where members of the Achill GAA and Bord Na nÓg club will address the crowd to welcome Eddie home on behalf of Achill GAA and community of Achill.   

This will be proceeded by a parade through the island starting in Achill Sound via Shraheens, Derreens, Cloughmore, Dooega, Saula, Cashel, Bunacurry, Dookinella, Keel, Dooagh, Dugort, The Valley and arriving at Eddie’s village of Dooniver. There will be refreshments provided in the Dooniver Community Rooms after.
