There was a press release today from the Ring of Kerry Organizing Committee. The 2009 event was a major success. A total of €451,000 was raised for the six charities involved who were:
- Kerry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre

- Kerry Branch of the Irish Soceity of Autism
- Killarney Order of Malta

As a cyclist of this event for many years I would like to congratulate everyone for their time, effort and energy in making this annual event a success. I would like to thank other cyclists who grinned and beared the 112 mile route with the aim of the supporting the charities involved, the organisers who ensure the smooth running of the event and I would also like to thank all of the volunteers who give up their time to raise as much money as they can for very worthy causes.
Next year’s event date has been announced for Saturday 3rd July 2010. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
