Boher Community Development Association’s annual Ciara McCarthy Memorial Cycle this Friday, June 2 will support of Cliona’s Foundation

The annual Ciara McCarthy Memorial Cycle organised by Boher Community Development Association takes place this Friday the 2nd of June with all proceeds going to Cliona’s Foundation

The annual Ciara McCarthy Memorial Cycle takes place this Friday and all proceeds will go to Cliona’s Foundation

This is the 10th  year of the very successful cycle and the McCarthy Family and their extended family, friends and community have been amazing supporters  since the  passing of 7-year-old Ciara in 2013

The full loop is 40km, but for the less experienced there are plenty of shortcut routes, which makes it suitable for all abilities, ages & bikes One of the highlights of the event is the fantastic post-cycle hospitality for all participants hosted by Boher Development Community Association.
