Keel GAA's spin for care group
Published 01/05/2013 | 05:36
KEEL GAA Club and Keel Palliative Care Fundraising Group are organising a fundraising cycle around the Dingle Peninsula on Saturday, May 4.
Funds raised will be split evenly between both organisations - funds raised on behalf of Keel Palliative Care Fundraising Group will be donated to the Palliative Care Unit in Tralee General Hospital and Keel GAA Club will also make a donation to the unit.
An ideal opportunity to train for The Ring Of Kerry Charity Cycle taking in some of Ireland's finest scenery along the way, the cycle kicks off at 10.30am from Boolteens Village with a choice of two routes.
Both begin in Boolteens village via Castlemaine and Tralee towards Camp. At the water station at Camp Junction cyclists will either divert to Annascaul through Gleann na Gealt, returning to Bolteens past Inch (a 75-kilometre trip) or continue past Camp Junction over the Conor Pass to the water station at Dingle and then back to Boolteens along the N86 to complete the 110-kilometre route.
Maintenance crews, supported by O'Sullivan Cycles in Killarney, will be in attendance and there will be a water stop at Foley's Bar near Inch Beach. Cyclists must be over 16 and registration fee is €30 and can be completed at www.pedalthepeninsula.com.
Alternatively, a cheque for €30 can be made payable to 'Keel Palliative Care' to Catherine O'Connor, Whitegate, Keel, Castlemaine, Killarney or entry forms and registration fees can also be dropped in by envelope to Benson's shop, Ballyarkane, Castlemaine.
There will also be registrations on the morning of the event and sponsorship cards are available.
