Pieta 100 charity cycle hits Tipperary

THE PIETA 100 charity cycle takes place at nine venues nationwide this Sunday, including Tipperary and Offaly. It gets underway at 9am from the County Arms Hotel in Birr, Co Offaly.

After a successful debut last year, the Pieta 100 has expanded from three locations to nine in 2016. Last year the cycles raised nearly €100,000, funds that help to keep Pieta’s life-saving counselling services free.

This year people can saddle up for the 100k or 50k events in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny/Carlow, Limerick, Tipperary/Offaly or Waterford.

Earlier this year, Pieta House was chosen by employees at Aviva Ireland as their charity partner over the next two years. The objective of the partnership is to make the Pieta 100 a 32-county event that will become over time as successful in raising funds for Pieta House as the Darkness Into Light walks, which take place each May.
