Pat Casey Memorial Cycle

September 29 - Registration/Start: 8:15 am & 9:30 am

| €30

The annual Pat Casey Memorial 122km Cycle  event, takes place Saturday, 29th September.

Now in its sixth year, the charity cycle has raised over €56,000 to date for research into idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a rare lung condition.

The route covers 122km, leaving Cork City Ford Centre, Forge Hill at 9.30am sharp, with the cyclists heading to Bandon, and Clonakilty before returning to Forge Hill via Kinsale.

Held in memory of Crosshaven man Pat Casey, who passed away from IPF in 2013, beneficiaries of the annual charity event are the Irish Lung Fibrosis Association (ILFA) and the respiratory unit at Cork University Hospital (CUH).

“Our volunteer support teams invest time and resources to keep the cyclists safe, hydrated and fed, while every year, participating cyclists take the time out to help this great cause. We have fantastic volunteers, who are out there with buckets, both on the day itself and also in advance with collections at Blackpool and Douglas shopping centres. We truly cannot express enough our appreciation for the support we receive.”

Registration is €30, and those wishing to take part can contact Brian at 086 0881064, Anne at 087 9854587 or email annecasey@live.ie. Registration will also be open on the morning of the cycle between 8am — 9am at Cork City Ford Centre, Forge Hill, Airport Road.
