TRALEE will welcome the Tour de Munster cyclists this Friday.

The event is held annually in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland and will see over 100 cyclists, including the legendary Sean Kelly, take to the roads for the four day cycle across Munster.

This year’s tour will be kicking off from City Hall in Cork City on Thursday, 10th August, and will return to Cork to see cyclist finish up the iconic and demanding St. Patrick’s Hill on Sunday, 13th August.

In between, the cyclists will roll into Manor West Retail Park in Tralee at about 4.40pm on Friday having already passed through Tarbert and Listowel.

Organisers are hoping people will turn out on Friday at Manor to support the cyclists.

They will stay in Tralee overnight before heading off on a tour of Kerry on Saturday to take in Stradbally, Dingle, Castlemaine, Milltown, Killarney and Kenmare.

Travelling over 600 km in just four days, the amateur cyclists will make their way through beautiful cities, towns and villages of all six counties of Munster.

Joining them will be cycling legend Sean Kelly, who is a huge supporter of the event with this being his 12th year participating in the Tour de Munster.

All funds raised from the charity cycle will go directly to the Munster branches of Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI), now in its 8th year as beneficiary of the cycle and to the individual beneficiaries involved.
