In aid of the Irish Heart Foundation
Champion jockey Nina Carberry swapped horsepower for pedal power to join An Taoiseach Mr Enda Kenny at the launch of the new Paddy Power Race to the Races 200km cyclechallenge in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation starting on 29 July.
A keen cyclist, An Taoiseach put his ‘spoke’ in to encourage participants to join the Dublin to Galway Races event for a one-day or two-day cycle by signing up to www.irishheart.ie/race2theraces . Also joining him for some wheelie good fun was bookmaker spokesman Paddy Power and activity events co-ordinator with the Irish Heart Foundation Grainne Kennedy.
