As part of Bike Week 2010, Barry Keating, Road Safety Officer, Clare County Council, Róisín Ni Ghairbhigh, An Taisce Green Flag Travel Office and the Gardaí organised a cycle tour of Ennis .
In excess of 400 children from Barefield, Clarecastle, Cloughleigh, Holy Family, C.B.S. Ennis, and Gaelscoil Inis National Schools took part in the Ennis event. The tour commenced at the Clare County Council offices and continued around Ennis on a 7 km route escorted by the Gardaí with refreshments provided by Ennis Tidy Towns Committee.
The cycle proved a great success and congratulations to all who participated, a special thanks to the Gardaí who provided excellent escort service for the cycle tours
It is hoped that this event will encourage the students to cycle on a more regular basis coming into summer months.
The tidy towns will hold a raffle for a bike and helmet when we get all the students names who participated in the event
well done to all
