The Kerry branch of the Irish Kidney Association is a charitable voluntary organisation dedicated to meeting the needs of renal patients and their families throughout Kerry.
In addition, they have also chosen Marymount Hospice as it is a facility that helped them through an extremely difficult time in their lives. In 2016, Eileen Kelliher passed away in Marymount Hospice. The quality of care she received was exceptional, and the family were assisted and supported continuously throughout this extremely difficult and emotional time by the staff of this wonderful facility.
Marymount is the designated Specialist Care Centre for the Kerry and Cork Region, and provides care for those with progressive illness, both cancer and non-cancer.
At Marymount, they provide excellent care while also cherishing the uniqueness and dignity of each person showing compassion and respect at all times.
Nothing was ever a problem to the staff, and we cannot thank them enough for all that they did for Eileen in her final days. Therefore,Timmy and his family have wanted to raise funds for this organisation in the hope that they will continue to support and assist many other families as they did his own.
As a result, he, his family and their local community have come together to organise a charity cycle, with all proceeds going towards both of these fantastic organisations. The cycle will take in some of Co. Kerry’s most breathtaking scenery. It will consist of two routes, 30km and 70km.
The 70km route will leave from the Red Fox, Glenbeigh and tour Caragh Lake, Glencar, Beaufort, Killorglin, Tullig and Cromane.
The 30km route will a much easier route and take in Caragh Lake, Killorglin, Tullig and Cromane. It is aimed at those that may not cycle on a regular basis.
We hope you will all come out and support us once again this year as we hope to raise much needed funds for two wonderful organisations. All donations will be extremely appreciated, and we look forward to a fantastic day out.
