A huge thank you to all the volunteers, participants and our wonderful committee members of the Ring of Beara Cycle. This year saw the event welcoming participants from all over the world and the feedback from those participants is overwhelmingly positive. One of the greatest assets the cycle has are the people, time and again we hear about how lovely all the volunteers were on the day, how people around town made them feel so welcome and how the cheering crowds coming down Henry
Street made for an amazing finish.
The idea behind the Ring of Beara cycle was to bring people to the area and show them what an amazing place the Beara Peninsula is. The collaboration between the communities of the peninsula and with the help of Elite Events management the cycle has surpassed all the initial hopes for the event and it continues to deliver above and beyond every year. Every year a survey is carried out and every year the part about the cycle that people love best is the people and the atmosphere. So to everyone who helped make that happen, whether you volunteered, participated, brought your
child in to take part in the kids cycle, served in the shops, restaurants, bars with a smile, thank you!
The cycle and it’s success are a credit to the town and the community of the Beara Peninsula.
Speaking of the amazing area in which we leave. This month we thought we would high light all the great activities that people can take part in. Kenmare is really spoilt for choice with kids camps, water sports, obstacle courses, cliff jumping, golf, horse riding, walking trails, cycle routes. Not to mention all the music nights, concerts and cinema offerings in the Carnegie, Supper clubs in the Sheen Falls, the 2 sisters Golf Tournament among many more. While there are too many to list,
please check out the Kenmare.ie ‘What’s on’ and ‘See & Do’ section for ideas. There really is something for everyone.
