Co. Westmeath native, Oliver Connell established Oliver Connell & Son Ltd in 1974, with his brother Pat joining him five years later. As partners in the business, and together with their sons, they grew the business into the significant construction company it is today.
Pat, Greg, James & Tom Connell are raising money for two charities, one of which is the “West London Kidney Patients’ Association”, a charity which is very close to their family as Oliver, the Founder of Oliver Connell & Son Ltd, sadly passed away last year, having suffered kidney disease for more than the last fifty years of his life.
Pat, his brother, donated his kidney for Oliver’s first transplant and it lasted for almost forty years before Oliver became unwell again. Oliver later went on to receive a second donor kidney.
They are also supporting ‘’The Lighthouse Club’’, which is a well-known charity in the construction industry. They are the only charity 100% dedicated to the physical, mental and financial wellbeing of construction workers and their families in the UK and Ireland.
Their mission is no construction worker or their family should feel alone in a crisis.
The OC Way Charity Cycle Ride will take place on Saturday 3rd July 2021. 24 cyclists will cycle 90 miles from Trinity College, Oxford to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge
