Padraig Moloney

I am an engineer working in the maritime and coastal industry. I have been a cycling enthusiast since the 1980's when every Irish boy and girl was inspired by Stephen Roche winning The Tour, The Giro and World Championships in one year!!

I am count myself as being extremely lucky to have had a steady, safe and comfortable life. But this is not the case for many families and kids in this "wealthy" country. I am also lucky enough to be able to attempt this ride to raise the awareness of poverty hidden in plain sight in our society.

Please assist the Food Bank charity in continuing its work to redress this imbalance.
