THE Tom Crean Unsung Hero Cycle and family fun weekend, in aid of Down Syndrome Kerry, is back again at Ballyseedy Home & Garden, Tralee.

Last year was the first year of the event when over 250 cyclists took to the road raising much needed funds for Down Syndrome Kerry.

The event has no fee to participate – but all donations to DSI Kerry are gratefully welcomed. The event is in partnership with the Tour de Munster, the annual charity cycle entering its 19th year this August.

DSI Kerry’s ‘Tom Crean Unsung Hero Charity Cycle’ pays homage to renowned explorer Tom Crean and also remembers DSI Kerry member, Emily Keohane from Tralee who sadly passed away in 2017.

The cycle includes a 75km or 44km cycle on the Saturday, setting out from Ballyseedy at 10am, going west through Camp, before lunch in Annascaul. The route continues on to Inch Beach and Castlemaine, before heading back to Ballyseedy to enjoy a BBQ, music and family fun. Registration takes place from 9am on Saturday morning.

Taking to the road in support again this year will be David Wallace, former Munster and Ireland rugby player along with Aidan O’Mahony, former Kerry footballer and Dancing with The Stars winner.

Sunday 21st will see a historical walk taking in the life of Tom Crean, again welcomed back to Ballyseedy Home & Garden with BBQ and more fun and games.

The weekend promises to provide fun and games for all the family while raising funds to provide essential services to members in Kerry with Down syndrome. All welcome!
