Cyclists will set out from the Newcastle West (Gaelscoil on Station Road) at 1.30 p.m. on Tuesday 27th December and walkers will leave from Ardagh Community Hall at the same time. The destination for both groups is Rathkeale where there will be a stop for refreshments. Cyclists will return by bike to Newcastle West (total distance 16miles/26km). Walkers only have to cover 5miles/8km as they will be provided with a return coach.
