The Kerry Bikers are hosting their annual Christmas Bike Run on December 18 to raise funds for St Francis’ Special School at St Mary of the Angels in Beaufort and Eagle Lodge in Tralee.
Now in its sixth year, the run, which is organised by an amalgamation of several Kerry Motorcycle Clubs under the banner of Kerry Bikers, will visit Killarney.
The run gets underway at 1030am from Tralee. The first stop off is in Sheahan’s Centra on the Muckross Road where the Tralee group will be joined local motorcyclists before setting off on a yet to be decided route.
“We will announce the route in Killarney. Last year we went to Killorglin , Faranfore and Castleisland, Abbeyfeale and Listowel maybe in reach and if so we will make donations to Nano Nagle Special School too, “ organiser Dave Foley said. “
Over 100 motorcycles are expected to take part in the run. Last year the full convoy measured 1.6km from start to finish.
“We hope to exceed that this year,” added Foley
