IT’S a phenomenal achievement.

Tommy Sheehy has been cycling and ‘spinning’ since 2011 in aid of Enable Ireland Kerry services and so far he’s raised a staggering €88,027 for the charity.

He handed over the latest cheque for nearly €5,249 to Sean Scally of Enable Ireland Kerry at their Childcare centre in Oakview on Tuesday morning.

This is the result of Tommy taking part in a series of ‘spinathons’ at supermarkets around the county earlier this year, where Tommy spent the day cycling on a stationary bicycle and people kindly made donations into buckets beside him.

“The spinathons aren’t easy, you’re going all day, but it’s great getting out meeting people and having a bit of banter,” said Tommy.

He was also in the Sierra Nevada mountains in Spain this summer where he successfully tackled Pico Valeta, the highest paved road in Europe going up 3,000 metres and measuring 41km.

“It was a great experience, I’ve been all over the Alps and that climb is up with the best of them,” he said. The funds he has raised over the years go towards helping children and adults with disabilities in Kerry.
