(Pre) Ring of Kerry 2018

I am currently gearing up (ahem) for the 2018 Ring of Kerry Cycle.

The cycle, not a race(!) takes place on Saturday, July 7th and is a challenging 175km route through the picturesque hills, drumlins, and mountains of County Kerry.

I am raising funds for Down Right Brilliant, who are aligned with the Newry & Mourne Down Syndrome Support Group.

Our story began some 35 years ago when a group from Killarney had an idea – to cycle the 175-kilometre ‘Ring of Kerry’ to raise money for charity. 35 years later, that vision hasn’t changed. Our story has. Today, the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle brings together 10,000 participants each year, making it Ireland’s largest one-day charity event. Together, we’ve raised almost €15 million for 150 charity organisations who make a powerful difference for people in need across our communities.
