Cian O'Neill lends his support

Plans have been finalised for the arrival of the Cycle Against Suicide into Newbridge next Saturday, May 6.

After leaving Carlow around 10am, the cycle will head through Athy for a small break at the Clanard Court Hotel, before turning on the L4002 for Suncroft.  

Cyclists from the Patrician Brother’s Secondary School will meet  up with the main group at St Brigid's Church in the Curragh Camp around 1:20pm, before heading to the school via Ballymany and Main Street, arriving for 1:50pm.

The cyclists will then be served refreshments in the school lunchroom, while entertainment will be provided by musicians from various years.
