Kells Cyclists Make The Trip To Tipp

Dads Charity Cycle - Destination Thurles

The newly formed Thurles Tourism group “Hidden Tipperary,” report that the Kells Dad’s Cycle charity event have chosen Thurles as their destination for their sixth annual staged cycle event.

Officially titled ‘Kells Windows Restoration Systems‘ this Dad’s Cycle for Charity Tour, in previous years have raised over €70,000 for worthy causes such as St Vincent de Paul, Meals-on-Wheels, Children of Chernobyl and Crossakiel Young At Heart.

The “Dad’s Cycle Charity,” was initially started by a group of ex-Drumbaragh GFC footballers who decided five years ago, to give back something to their local community, latter who continue to strongly supported all local GAA clubs in the Kells area.

The 12 man group of cyclists will depart from Kells for Thurles on Friday 17th June and the cyclists will stay at the historical Hayes’s Hotel, Liberty Square in Thurles, latter the birth place of the GAA, first founded in 1884.

On Saturday June 18th, the group are expected to cycle to the Rock of Cashel, following in the footsteps of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who recently visited this area.

The group have been invited by the “Hidden Tipperary ” Committee, to visit St Mary’s Famine Museum as guests of Thurles, during their short stay, before returning to Kells on Sunday 19th June next.

So if you spot a group of “Tough looking Meath footballers,” hanging about, do say hello and give them a true Thurles welcome. Remember our Motto “Fleadh agus Failte.” (Translated from Irish:- “Banquet (or Party) and Welcome.”)
