Get on your bike for Mid West Simon

Maura McMahon, events and donor relationship manager, Mid West Simon Community; Michael O’Neill, director, O’Neill Industrial; and Austin O’Neill, O’Neill Industrial.

MID West Simon Community have teamed up with O’Neill Industrial, The Air Solution Company for their second annual charity cycle, which will take place on Saturday April 23 starting at McMahon’s Bar (The Daggers) Ardnacrusha at 9am.
Building on the success of the last charity cycle, which was in 2019 before Covid-19 hit, it will be a truly fun and enjoyable cycle for a great cause, which is the homeless services at Mid West Simon Community.
All bikes can be used for the cycle ie. racers, hybrids and mountain bikes. Cyclists must be at least 18 years of age. The route will cover 85 kilometres in total outbound to Mountshannon, Co Clare via Broadford, with the return leg via Killaloe under the supervision of bike marshalls, to ensure the safety of cyclists. There will be outbound snacks at the Grotto in Tuamgraney, with sandwiches and refreshments served in Mountshannon, before the return to Ardnacrusha (via Killaloe). The cycle will culminate with a family friendly BBQ at McMahon’s Ardnacrusha at 3pm.
Jackie Bonfield, CEO Mid West Simon Community said: “We are delighted that O’Neill Industrial has chosen Mid West Simon Community as the beneficiary for their Annual Charity Cycle again this year. O’Neill Industrial’s support and those who support this Charity Cycle will make a huge difference in the lives of so many vulnerable people throughout our community.  All funds raised from this event will go towards our Homeless services in Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary and all funds raised locally will stay local.”
