A CYCLING dynamo from Ballyroe visited Enable Ireland Kerry at Oakview this morning to deliver another big cheque to the service.

This year, Tommy Sheehy, originally from Castleisland, has raised a staggering €12,186 for Enable Ireland Kerry Services by undertaking a series of 8 hour spinning sessions throughout Kerry.

To date Tommy has raised over €56,000 for Enable Ireland since 2011.

Tommy said; “I get great support from all the major retail outlets in the county and without their support I would not be able to raise the amount I’ve raised over the years. I’d also like to thank all the people throughout the county that support me in my efforts. People are very good”.

Tommy, who works for Keane’s Supervalu in Killorglin, was also in Croatia, Slovenia and Italy earlier this year on a fundraising cycle. He’s off again in October to do a six day trip in Spain taking on 3,000 metre steep climbs every day in aid of the charity.

“That’s a tough one so I’m in training for that. I go training on the Short Mountain,” said Tommy, who also traversed the Conor Pass climb 12 times in one day recently!

Sean Scally from Enable Ireland said; “It’s a wonderful boost to our services. Tommy fundraising is appreciated by everyone and we are extremely grateful for his support. I’d like to thank all the retails in Kerry that allow Tommy to undertake his spinning sessions .

In Kerry, Enable Ireland provide a range of supports and services to children and adults with disabilities. The aim is to ensure that a disability is not an obstacle to a child or adult reaching their full potential. All services are provided Free of Charge and while we receive funding from the State we do rely on the support of volunteers, community and local business to help us meet the needs of our services”.
