Registration is now open for the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle which will take place this year on July 4.


“The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle is considered a ‘bucket list’ experience by veterans of the annual event,” Bridget McGuire, Chairperson for the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, said. “The route will undoubtedly test your fitness and endurance, but the camaraderie of fellow cyclists that travel all over the world just to take part, encouragement from spectators, and the knowledge that your fundraising efforts can make such a big difference to deserving charities is all the motivation you’ll need to get you around the route!”


Each year, six charities are shortlisted from a long list of applicants to become approved beneficiaries of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle. This year, cyclists can choose to raise much-needed funds for the following charities:

Ard Chúram Day Care Centre, Listowel; Banna Rescue; Breakthrough Cancer Research; Cunamh Iveragh; Down Syndrome Ireland (Kerry branch) and St Francis Special School.
