Adults are not the only ones getting on their bikes for the Ring of Beara Cycle as the event also has its very own cycle for children around the town of Kenmare.

Not only does this give kids a chance to join in the days’ activities with their parents on May 28, but it’s free! Plus it’s a great way for kids to get outdoors and exercise in a fun and safe environment.

The Ring of Beara Kids’ Cycle is open to any child in national school between Third and Fifth Class. It starts at 10am on the day, well after the adults have set-off, and follows a 2km route around Kenmare town starting in Kenmare Square.

A team of marshals will supervise the route and help ensure the safety of all children who participate. Anyone who wishes to register a child for the cycle can do so from 9.30am at the marquee located in Kenmare Square on the day of the event. Parents and guardians are welcome to cycle with their children. All participants should bring and wear a safety helmet for the cycle.

You do not have to be registered for the Ring of Beara Cycle for your child to take part, and cycling with your child is not mandatory.

Kids will also receive their own special medal when they cross the finish line!

The night featured different exhibitions about Killarney Lions Club activities such as the Annual Christmas Food Appeal and the Kerry Clubs Fair.

“It was great that people made the effort to come and find out more what Killarney Lions Club does, despite the weather on the night. We are a voluntary group so community support is vital for activities such as our Christmas Food Appeal which will kick off very soon.”

The Killarney Lions Club, through its members, assists various groups and individuals in and around the community. Lions do this through voluntary activities, fundraising and by holding various types of events in support of a great many local causes.
