Tommy has raised the phenomenal amount of funds over the years to help children and adults with disabilities in Kerry and will be in Killorglin, Tralee, Killarney, Castleisland and Listowel over the coming weeks.

Tommy says; “I get great support from all the managers and owners of the retail outlets that allowed me to undertake the spinning. Without their support I’d be unable to raise so much money. I’d also like to thank everyone who donated money while I’m spinning. It’s tough doing the 8 hours however I have great banter with some of the customers.”

“Enable Ireland is very close to my heart and I’m delighted to help. I’ve been doing these for a number of years and I’m always amazed at the amount of money I raise,” he said.

The spinning sessions will be great practice for Tommy as he is off to the Sierra Nevada mountains in Spain this summer to tackle the Pico Valeta, the highest paved road in Europe going up 3,000 metres and measuring 41km.

He will be travelling with the Cycling Safari group from Dublin and is also practising by going up and down Short Mountain.

Sean Scally from Enable Ireland said; “It’s great to have Tommy supporting our services in Kerry. The money he raises supports children and adults with disabilities in Co Kerry. All our services are geared to ensure that a disability is not an obstacle to a child or adult expressing themselves, building friendships, playing sports, accessing education and participating in the community.”
