Trevor Kerley from Ardee did something special to help raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society.

Trevor cycled on a penny farthing bicycle, supplied by Wheels and Heels Cycles Ardee.

He was supported by his great team of Robert Moonan, Ollie Arthur, Catherine Clarke, Tommy Clarke, Tony McHugh, and raised €6,310 for the Irish Cancer Society.

They went from Ardee to Tallanstown, Knockbridge, Dundalk, Dunleer, Drogheda, Collon and back to Ardee.

Brenda McCarthy of the Irish Cancer Society came to Ardee to collect the cheque and was absolutely delighted to accept it on behalf of the society and thanked Trevor and the team and all the people of Ardee and the rest of Louth who so generously contributed.

Benny Grogan, another great charity fundraiser and cyclist, was also there.

Both Benny and Ollie Arthur are gearing up for another major event.

The Great North East Cycle, incorporating Ireland’s biggest tandem tour, will take place on Saturday 24 September.

It is in aid of Vision Sports Ireland and all cyclists on bicycles and tandems are welcome.

The routes are 50k or 100k through the Cooley peninsula. It starts at 10am at the Carrickdale Hotel.
