This weekend a very unique challenge is being put to the public all to benefit a good cause.

The Chili Cauli Cup Challenge is being run by the team at the Real Burger Killorglin and it promises to be hot!

The idea is to get customers to try the challenge to see if they can eat the chili dish – and all proceeds will go towards local man TJ O’Connor’s 54321 Challenge.

Chef Mohammad Anzy saw fellow chef Chad Byrne raising much need funds for one of TJ’s chosen charities the Skellig Stars, and asked how he could help out.

“He has created a heat seeking missile of Chili and cauliflower,” Chad explained to the Killarney Advertiser.
“With TJ doing his challenge we said we would challenge the people of Kerry to come out and try our dish of crispy cauliflower with hot sauce!”

If you’re up for the challenge this weekend then go to the Real Burger or indeed have it in O’Sheas Pub Killorglin, he added.

“It’s vegan, organic and gluten free. Knowing it all goes to a great cause your lips might be on fire but you will be happy munching away.”

The 54321 Challenge was due to begin on Thursday.

However, due to the arrival of Storm Ellen, in the interest of safety of volunteers they had to make changes to the start of the challenge this year.

They began with the Day 4 Challenge¬†instead with a 70km cycle indoors on turbo trainers by participants and will continue with the rest of their adventures over the coming days to raise funds for this year’s charities Kerry Hospice Foundation, Skellig Stars and Enable Ireland Kerry.
