Emergency Services Charity Cycle on September 15th


Sláinte and Chláir benefit from the proceeds of last years event

The third annual Emergency Services Cycle will take place this Saturday 15th 2018.

The Cycle will leave Ennis Garda Station at 10am and complete a 75km route, stopping at Tulla for refreshments.

All monies raised and donated will go directly to the charity.

Members of the public, of all cycling abilities, are invited to join the emergency services personnel on the day.
