Solid support from Irish Cement for the Tour de Munster and Down Syndrome Limerick
The Tour de Munster is now in its 22nd year. From 4th August, over 100 cyclists will pedal over 600km for 4 days around the 6 counties of Munster. The Tour de Munster has been raising funds for the Munster branches of Down Syndrome Ireland for the last 12 years. To date almost €4 million has been raised for charities as well as raise awareness of the vital work that they do. Each year companies very kindly sponsor the jerseys for the event. Irish Cement is one such company that is supporting people with Down syndrome in Limerick.
Irish Cement is Ireland’s leading supplier of quality cement. They have been making cement at their Limerick cement factory for over 80 years. During all those decades their cement has been a critical ingredient in the buildings and infrastructure built throughout Munster. Many of the roads, tunnels and mountain passes that form the route of the Tour de Munster have been made possible with their cement.
Elaine O’Hehir, Irish Cement’s HR & Community Liaison Manager says,
“At Irish Cement we have a long tradition of supporting local charities, sports clubs and associations that provide essential services right across the community. We are especially committed to good causes that reflect the passions and interests of our own workforce”.
Ellen Tuffy, Chairperson of Down Syndrome Limerick says,
“Tour de Munster is an important fundraiser for us. We are delighted to have local companies, such as Irish Cement, involved in the event. Their support means so much to the children and adults who avail of services at DSL. Thank you to Irish Cement, once again, for their support”.
