From Wednesday the 13th of August to Saturday the 16th, I will be cycling from the RNLI Station in Dún Laoghaire Harbour, 300 kilometres, to Leenane in Co. Galway, and the shores of Killary Harbour.
You can donate on-line and support my charity cycle here.
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea and it relies almost entirely on legacies, voluntary contributions and fundraising. Last year, the RNLI rescued an average of 23 people every day; it has saved over 140,000 people since it was founded in 1824.
RNLI lifeboats in Ireland launched 1,087 times from 44 stations around the island, and brought 1,278 people to safety. Dún Laoghaire Lifeboat launched more than any other Irish RNLI Station in 2013, with its volunteer crew rescuing 67 people during 58 call outs. You can read more about Dún Laoghaire Lifeboat here.
