The annual Joe Daly memorial cycle in aid of Simpson's hospital will be taking place in a couple of weeks, on Sunday the 23rd.

It starts at 10:00am from the grounds of the Simpson's Hospital. From there, we will roll out to Enniskerry, where there'll be a refreshment stop, before doing an about turn and heading home again.

Simpson's Hospital has been caring for older persons in a homely, relaxed and friendly atmosphere since 1779, and the annual cycle raises much-needed funds. Entry fee is €10 for adults, €5 for Under 14s, and there will be a raffle at the finish for all participants.

It's only a 25km total distance, and with the halfway stop, is ideal for occasional cyclists and families. Orwell members are encouraged to come along and act as rolling marshalls.
