It’s that time of year again, Clionas Foundation launch ninth annual cycle with members of the Clionas Foundation Cycle Club. The cycle will take place this year on Saturday, August 27. The cycle which has become a popular date in the diary of many cyclists will start this year from Bruff Rugby Club, just 25km from Limerick city.

With three routes including a 10km for kiddies, a 40km family/leisure cycle and the 90km Cliona’s Challenge the event caters for cyclists of all levels of ability. On finishing the cycle, participants and onlookers can look forward to plenty of food from the famous BBQ, while the kids will be kept entertained also with the bouncy castle and more.

For the ladies who don’t fancy hopping on a bike, this year there will be a limited stock of previously-loved designer clothes on sale from 10am in the Rugby Club.


Registration fee is adults €20, child €5 and family €30 and this includes the BBQ and entertainment.

Cliona’s Foundation provides financial assistance to children with life limiting conditions. Founded in 2007 by Brendan and Terry Ring, in memory of their daughter Cliona who died of an inoperable brain tumour, Cliona’s Foundation has raised in excess of €1,000,000 already helping more than 330 families. Cliona’s Foundation receives no financial state support and relies on the generosity of the public to ensure its continuity.

To take part in this year’s cycle you can register online by logging onto or at the event on the day. For those registering on the day, registration for all routes will start at 8.30am at the event.
