D'Arcy in top gear

IRELAND rugby star Gordon D'Arcy joined staff from KBC Bank Ireland who are taking part in a 760km charity cycle from Brussels to Dublin to raise funds for Barnardos and Barretstown.

The KBC Peloton, which starts today, will see 21 men and women from KBC cycle almost 800km over five days through Belgium, France and Ireland with the initial fundraising target set at €20,000 for the two charities.

Gordon D'Arcy is ambassador for Barretstown and he was on-hand to set the Peloton on its way.
