A TRALEE man is preparing for a trip to Africa in February to work for an Irish charity which helps both sexually abused and trafficked children and he’s organising a fundraising ‘Sunday drive’ next month to raise funds for the project.

Kerry’s Eye photographer Robert O’Mahony, who now lives in Cloghane in west Kerry, travelled with the Ray Of Sunshine Foundation in 2016 and helped with housing for affected children in Mombasa, Kenya.

He is hoping people take part in the ‘Steer To The Pier’ on Sunday, September 3, which is a drive from the Aquadome, over Bóthar Na gCloc, on to Inch Beach, then Dingle, over the Conor Pass and arriving at Brandon Pier.

There, participants will enjoy a barbecue and can watch the All-Ireland hurling final. Robert is also advising people to bring their fishing gear or a wetsuit for a dive off the pier!

The cost is only €20 per car and this includes food and a scenery photograph. The drive starts at 11am from the Aquadome.

Robert pays for his own flights and expenses in Kenya, so all monies raised will go towards building a rescue centre for trafficked children in the African country.

You can contact Robert for more details on 087-7722115 or by email or go online to to learn more about the charity.
