St. Kieran’s GAA Club is appealing to cyclists of all and any ability to sign on for the return of the fundraising cycle on Sunday, June 23rd at 9:30am sharp.

The organisers have outlined a 56 kilometer route which, they feel, will be suitable for all cyclists as it is mainly level with no serious climbs along its course.

Only Fundraising Event

“We’re looking for the support from all the St. Kieran’s community and beyond as this is our only major fundraising undertaking,” said event spokesman, Jackie Brosnan.

“As a district team and drawn from several clubs, St. Kieran’s doesn’t enjoy the benefits of gate receipts from matches and this makes it quite difficult to keep the club going.

Community Support

“Without the help, generosity and support of the communities in the club’s area the task would prove impossible.

There will be two food stop along the route of the cycle and with tea, coffee and refreshments available at the finish.

Don’t Forget Your Helmet

The cost per adult is: €20 and €10 for those under 16 years of age and members of the latter age group will have to be accompanied by an adult.

The morning of the cycle will open with registration at 8am at the starting point at Castleisland Desmonds GAA Club grounds on the Limerick Road. Helmets are mandatory.

“What better way to spend a Sunday morning ? Asked Jackie Brosnan in conclusion.
