Don't ho ho hold back on Santa cycle
The call is out for anyone who wants to take part in charity Santa Cycle events in Dublin, Donegal and Cork on Sunday, December 4.
Organised by Our Lady's Hospital Crumlin, the proceeds will benefit Straight Ahead, a charity founded by orthopaedic surgeons, nurses and supporters.
