Over the last 21 years, the charity cycle, led by Tour de France Green Jersey legend Sean Kelly has raised a staggering €3.4 million for various charities.

The Down Syndrome Ireland Munster branch is the chosen charity for this year’s event which got underway yesterday in Cork.

Today (Friday), the cyclists made their way from Limerick to Tralee. The third stage of the event takes in the Dingle Peninsula and will finish in Kenmare.

Tomorrow (Saturday), the group of cyclists are expected in Milltown between 3pm, and 3.30pm.
They will pass through Aghadoe around 3.45pm before an extended stop at Deenagh Lodge – the café there is operated by Down Syndrome Ireland – between 4pm and 4.30pm.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming the 21st edition of the Tour de Munster charity cycle to Kerry,” Kevin Griffin, Chairman of Down Syndrome Kerry and President of Down Syndrome Ireland said. “As a past participant of the tour, I appreciate the huge amount of hard work and dedication that goes into preparing for this 600km route.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
