How To Support Darbs

With over two weeks to the Munster Rugby Cycle in aid of Paul Darbyshire and Motor Neurone Research, fundraising efforts are taking place across the province and there are a number of ways for people to show their support for our colleague and friend.

The Munster Rugby Cycle from Cork to Warrington will take place from June 19th to June 23rd and with five stages you can show your support by taking part in a single stage or in multiple stages.

If not able to take part we welcome people to show their support at the different stages by greeting those participating Paul Darbyshire with Ronan O'Gara after Munster's 2011 Magners League final winin the cycle, and most importantly we are calling on people to donate towards this worthy cause.

More details about Paul, the cycle and how to donate online can be found here.

Thanks to all who have registered and donated up to this point, all help is greatly appreciated, and for those who haven’t signed up yet, get on your bike and sign up now!
