Killaloe rugby legends get behind Cycle Against Suicide


IRISH rugby legends, Killaloe duo Anthony Foley and Keith Wood have put their shoulder to the wheel so to speak by endorsing the forthcoming Cycle Against Suicide. Both are happy to spread the message that ‘it’s ok not to feel ok and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help.’

The duo will be on home ground this Friday night at 8.30pm to lend their support to the Cycle Against Suicide at a press event in Wood Brothers, Main Street, Killaloe.

This year’s cycle will take in the entire island of Ireland over the course of two weeks, stopping in Newcastle West, Limerick and Ennis on May 2 and 3.

A large group of cyclists from Killaloe, led by locals Pádraig Egan, Timothy and Joss Lowry, will make their own mini-Cycle Against Suicide starting from Killaloe to Limerick on May 3.  There, they will link up with the rest of the pelethon at Crescent College Comprehensive in Dooradoyle.  At that point, up to 1,000 cyclists are expected to be on board for the leg between Limerick and Ennis.

Cycle Against Suicide founder Jim Breen will be present at Friday’s press launch to speak on behalf of the charity.
