Recently over 70 students and staff undertook a fun 12km cycle around Dromcollogher and Broadford.
Funds raised on the day were donated the Ms O’Connor who is undertaking an incredible cycling challenge this summer.
To raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis Ireland Ms O’Connor will cycle the entire Wild Atlantic Way from South to North is approximately 25 days. To do this Ms O’Connor will need to average over 100km per day.
Here is some video footage taken on the day.
