A recent charity cycle rode its way into Cork raising more than €250,000.

The Tour de Munster raised €256,404 for the Munster branches of Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI) and individual beneficiaries.

This is the ninth year that DSI has been the main beneficiary of the popular charity cycle. Cyclists also had the option to select their own beneficiary and raise funds and awareness for it.

A cheque was presented to DSI and individual beneficiaries at an event attended by cyclists, branch members, and their families at Clayton Hotel Silver Springs recently.

This year’s charity cycle saw over 120 amateur cyclists travel more than 600km through the six counties of Munster from 9-12 August, supported by friends, family and the many volunteers who fundraised along the route.

Paul Sheridan who established Tour de Munster in 2001 said: “So many people have contributed in whatever way they can to raise this incredible amount of money for DSI’s Munster branches as well as a number of individual beneficiaries and it truly is fantastic. None of this would be possible without the dedication and efforts.”
