The outstanding contribution of the Killaloe Coast Guard Unit to communities in South-East Clare and North Tipperary has been honoured by a new monthly awards scheme.
Following the success of the inaugural Kells pink ribbon walk which raised an amazing E100 000 for Action Breast Cancer!, it was decided to bring the event to Munster
Tour De Munster 2011
On Thursday August 11th, a team of 'leisure' cyclists will commence a demanding four-day 600km charity cycle which will take them through all the counties of Munster.
Participants in the 2010 Tour de Munster will each collect individual sponsorship and the tour will be accompanied by volunteers who hope to leverage the event with collections in the cities, towns and villages along the route.
Everyone participating in the event covers their own costs and all funds raised go directly to Down Syndrome Ireland.
For the 6th successive year, the cyclists will once again stay at the Lakeside Hotel on the 1st night of their adventure. Their expected arrival time is 7pm.
