Colourful crew use pedal power to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis

WALLIES, Umpa Lumpas and all sorts of other colourful characters cycled their way around Wexford on Sunday.

The eclectic bunch of cyclists (and one motorcyclist!) all came together under the banner of Tracie Lawlor Trust for Cystic Fibrosis.

However, the charity cycle was organised in memory of another young Wexford woman who suffered with cystic fibrosis before she passed away at a young age, Audrey McGrath of Coolishall, Duncormick.

It was organised by her great friend Martina Doran - who also happened to be the sole motorcyclist!

Tracie Lawlor's father Ian was also a standout entrant on the day, as he and Tony Doyle formed the 11850 duo!

Up to 50 people in all took part in the cycle, which was accompanied in and around Wexford town by a Garda escort. A spokesperson said that it was a hugely enjoyable event and they received great support from members of the public whom they met along the way.

The sheer array of colourful costumes meant they were never likely to pass by unnoticed! All proceeds are in aid of the Tracie Lawlor Trust for Cystic Fibrosis.
