A Killarney man who raised over €15,000 for Kerry Hospice by running 170 miles last November in memory of his sister-in-law is asking the public to support their local Hospice.
David Looney got to see first-hand the care his sister-in-law Geraldine received during her time in Hospice, witnessing how its work enormously comforted her family.
Seeing this effect alone was powerful enough to spur him out in the November rain.
A new initiative aimed at helping older persons and those with mobility issues to regain the experience of being out and about on a bike to gain better access to explore their local community has been taken up by residents of Killarney Community Hospital and St Columbanus Home.
For the past four months, theHSE Cork Kerry Community Healthcare and Killarney Cycling Club initiative ‘Killarney Cycling Without Age’ has been helping the hospital and care home residents enjoy trips through Killarney town and around the jewel in Killarney’s crown - Killarney National Park.
