Ring of Kerry 2013

Report from The Kingdom

The annual ‘Ring of Kerry’ charity cycle took place last Saturday 6th July. After last years successful outing the crazy gang once again headed south for a weekend of cycling and other night time activities. I headed over to collect Ollie and Paul with the trusty bike rack ready for the trip south. Paul wasn’t particularly keen on the bike rack idea so he sat in the back along with his pride and joy. We met up with the 2 remaining members of the crew Dermot and Collie in Birr and deposited some of the gear in Dermots wagon. Continue reading Ring of Kerry 2013
