Farmer and friend suspend Sydney to Dublin fundraising cycle
A Carrick-on-Suir man from a farming background and his friend who were geared up to cycle home from Sydney across 28 countries to raise funds for two children’s charities have had to suspend their cycle because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Paddy Flynn from Knockalavalla, and his friend Daithi Harrison from Tipperary, started out on Sunday, August 4, 2019, from outside the Sydney’s children’s hospital in Randwick.
Their plan was to complement the cycle with an ultra-marathon in all 28 countries to raise money for the Medical Research Foundation Crumlin and the Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Paddy had been working in Sydney for nine years, laying light rail tracks for rail travel and intends to return home to the family dairy farm currently run by his father Michael and mother Mary. They have 110ac and milk 64 cows.
