Hugh Bergin to give talk on his epic cycle from Ireland to Burma
There will be a treat for all lovers of epic adventure stories, and indeed cycling enthusiasts, when Hugh Bergin comes to DkIT to talk about his epic journey across Europe and Asia by bicycle. Come to S216 on Wednesday the 30th April from 3 - 4pm. Everyone is very welcome.
Hugh's trip, which was entirely self financed, raised funds for two charities, the DkIT supported GBS project and the Susie Long Hospice fund. Hugh set out from Kilkenny last May, travelling 15,000 miles across Europe, central Asia, Pakistan and India, finally reaching the Thai Burma border on Christmas eve before visiting the GBS school in Nu Po camp and then continuing on around Burma/Myanmar.
