The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle has broken its previous funding record for 2015.
The charity which is in its 32nd year, raised over €1.89 million this year, an increase of €300,000 on the 2014 figure.
Over 11,000 people took part in the event earlier this summer which saw cyclists complete the 180km Ring of Kerry route.
A total of 38 charities will benefit, including nine primary charities.
They are Valentia Community Hospital; St Joseph’s Home, Killorglin; Enable Ireland Kerry Services, Tralee; Social Action Group, Rathmore; Console; Down Syndrome Kerry; Kerry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre; St Francis Special School and St John of God Kerry Services and the Kerry Hospice.
Numerous charities will receive €2,000 each.
PRO of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, Cathal Walshe says despite there being less money in people’s pockets, the public have remained loyal to this charity cycle.
