Killeedy MC Charity Group: We are a small group of motorcycle enthusiasts, who with the support of some family and friends have come together to organise a CHARITY motorcycle poker run on Saturday 25th May starting in Raheenagh and finishing in Ashford Co. Limerick with the aim of raising money for Pieta House

A poker run is an organized event where participants, using motorcycles, and paying an entry fee of €10, must visit five checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. The event has a time limit, however the participants are not timed—winning is purely a matter of chance.

If you have any queries please contact Richie on 0868308893.
