Now in its 18th year, more than 100 amateur cyclists took on the 600km cycle to raise more than €250,000 for Down Syndrome Ireland and individual beneficiaries.

Travelling across all six counties in Munster, the amateur cyclists made their way through a number of beautiful cities, towns and villages, where they were met and cheered on by the public. Joining them was cycling legend Seán Kelly, who is a huge supporter of the event and has participated in the Tour de Munster for the past 12 years.

All funds raised from the charity cycle will go directly to the Munster branches of Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI).

Since its inception in 2001, Tour de Munster has raised more than €2.5 million for its beneficiaries with almost €2.1 million for DSI alone.
