Former Clare All Star Seamus Clancy as well as Clare hurlers Brian O’Connell, Brendan Bugler, Gerry O’Grady and Tony Griffin, will join an estimated 50 cyclists during the October 10th event. Event organisers hope to raise in excess of €5,000 for Acquired Brain Injury Ireland and Cystic Fibrosis.

The charity cycle will get underway at Corofin where the cyclists will be seen off by Mayor of Clare Councillor Tony Mulcahy and Minister of State Tony Killeen, T.D. The cycle will continue on through Ennistymon, Lahinch, Liscannor, Doolin, Fanore and Ballyvaughan, before finishing up at Kilnaboy.

Acquired Brain Injury Ireland, formerly known as The Peter Bradley Foundation, enables people with Acquired Brain Injury to live an independent life in the community by providing and maintaining a supportive living environment. Acquired Brain Injury Ireland strive for excellence in the provision of services to people with Acquired Brain Injury and their families, to enable them to maximise potential within their communities.

The Cystic Fibrosis Association of Ireland, which is totally dependent on fundraising and voluntary donations, is the body responsible for the provision of a wide range of services to the Cystic Fibrosis community in the Republic of Ireland. Cystic Fibrosis is Ireland's most common genetically inherited disease. Ireland has the highest incidence of the disease in the developed world, with 1 in 19 members of the population being carriers of the recessive CF gene. When two carriers of the recessive gene parent a child together, there is a one in four risk of the child having the disease. There is presently no cure for this disease.
