Cycle for missing persons

By Tommy Campbell, Irish Independent, Evening Herald, Sunday Independent

Tosh Lavery, a former cyclist who participated in the FBD Milk Ras and is now heavily involved in the Health and Safety of the sport, has thrown all his weight behind the Missing in Ireland Support Service (, a voluntary organisation. It was formed to provide support for families and friends of missing persons.

On Saturday, December 10, they intend to hold a "Missing Miles" cycle as part of their public awareness campaign. The event will commence at the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin and travel via Terenure, Rathfarnham, Johnny Foxes Pub and Tallaght. During the ride, they will halt briefly at four locations in order to meet the families of the long-term missing, and a symbolic "Candle of Hope" will be presented to the families by Dermot Browne, Chairperson of MISS.

It is hoped that the cycling clubs throughout Ireland will show solidarity with the promotion. It has to be stressed that this is not a fund raiser.
