The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

WEST Kerry char­ity cy­cling supremo Seán Ó Catháin hit the road on Mon­day on a tour that will take him past ev­ery no­table lake from Dún Chaoin to Dún na nGall, rais­ing money for Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis Ire­land along the way.

For al­most as long as he can re­mem­ber, the re­tired Scoil Cill Mhic a’ Domh­naigh prin­ci­pal has made an an­nual bi­cy­cle road trip with the de kn 28-37 sti­na­tion based on what­ever seems like a good theme at the time. This year’s theme is lakes so he’s start­ing out at Mount Ea­gle lake, wind­ing around the Lakes of Kil­lar­ney and then fol­low­ing a me­an­der­ing route up the coun­try to Lough Dearg in Done­gal.

The cy­cle is in mem­ory of Seán’s sis­ter, Peigí Mistéal, who sadly passed away in April and funds raised will be do­nated to Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis Ire­land. Spon­sors or do­na­tions for Seán’s cy­cle are wel­come and can be made to Bank of Ire­land, Din­gle. The ac­count num­ber is 02577013; sort code 93 62 86.
