Get on your bike to support NPU Sponsored Cycle from Dublin to Miltown Malbay

6th Annual Sponsored Cycle – Dublin to Miltown Malbay
3-4th July 2015

The annual Na Píobairí Uilleann (NPU) sponsored cycle from Dublin to Milltown Malbay in Co. Clare for the Willie Clancy Summer School is on the horizon again and we are looking for 30 Cyclists to join us and help to raise €500 each towards this year’s target of €15k.



Aimed at cyclists of all abilities, the cycle is punctuated by music, plenty of sport and provides NPU not only with a great opportunity to add to the funds raised over the past five years – but also to raise awareness for the organisation including great projects such as our new building No. 16 Henrietta St., our PipeCraft Training Centre and our Outreach Teaching Programme.
