A group of Wexford cyclists went that extra mile when they raised money for two local causes with their annual charity cycle.

Led by Niall McDonnell from Kilrane, the team of 28 cyclists pedalled from Mizen Head to Rosslare Harbour to raise funds for Rosslare Harbour Lifeboat and St. Mary's GAA Club, Rosslare. The keen cyclists raised €3000 for each cause, which was slightly higher than last year.

'Anything that we can raise is brilliant,' said Leo Coy, Chairman of Rosslare RNLI and one of the cyclists. 'We hope to raise even more next time.'

After several weeks to rest their tired limbs, the fundraisers presented the money to members of each organisation in Culletons of Kilrane.

The charity cycle is an annual event for the group, who are led by Niall McDonnell, treasurer of St. Mary's GAA Club.
