Beara Charity Cycle 2016 has been announced for the 16th of July. What makes the Beara Charity Cycle so great is that it is organised fully by volunteers and is a non profit event, all of the money made by the participants paying their 50€ to take part goes to four local charities.
This is the sixth year that the event is being held and over the years this event has succeeded in raising 65000€ for local charities. The participants always have a great time and the routes are spectacular.
Watch a short video here of route two which shows some of the spectacular scenery.

Dursey Festival 2015 a well organised weekend but unfortunately let down by the cable car running on Winter hours. Hundreds were turned away from the island. Which was a great shame as there was plenty to do and see on the Island. Even the mayor of Cork made it over and was almost stuck on the island. The cable car is Ireland’s only cable car and as such is a big tourist draw to the area. Which is well in need of visitors. In any case those that made it had a great time and there were quite a few people sleeping over on the Saturday night. Thanks to the Islanders for their hospitality.
Bere Island one of the islands of the South West coast of Ireland in County Cork. A great place to visit with many interesting things to do and see.
Watch the video below for an insight to the Island
Lets hope the Island and the other non-Irish speaking islands can keep their funding for the future.

This is a promotion Beara post on a “Zero Euro Budget”, in that, it did not cost anything. However 8.15 Euro was spent on tea and biscuits, 16 Euro on petrol and 16 Euro on the ferry fare. Plus 26 hours of work.
Sonia O’Sullivan will be visiting Bere Island soon to do their Parkrun. Thanks To Helen and John for giving me some time and information on my two trips to Bere Island.
