John Cronin, Croom Cycle Club and Enda Kenny congratulate each other in completing the sponsored cycle for Irish Association of Suicidology in 2005

The Irish Prime minister Enda Kenny will cycle 120 miles around the Ring of Kerry on a one day challenge next month, before auctioning off his bike for charity.

Kenny, who hails from County Mayo will tackle one-day cycle on July 2 which will take almost eight hours.
“This is not my first time,” Kenny told the Western People.

“I participated in it last year for the sense of being outdoors but also for the wide range of charities that it supports. Political representatives should be taking a role when they can for the people who might not be able to do so. It’s for a very good cause,"

The Bike Clinic in Castle bar County Mayo, in conjunction with Trek Ireland presented the Irish leader with a top-of-the range road bike worth €2,000 for his challenge.

After he completes the challenge, the bike will be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to charity.

Kenny said the state of the art bike will be auctioned off after the challenge:”I can’t accept the bicycle personally but we’ll use it in the cycle of the Ring of Kerry and we’ll auction it for the charities involved. There are a whole range of charities, mostly associated with the disadvantaged and caring for the under-privileged, children in particular.”
