Moll's Gap Closed for Ring of Kerry Cycle, July 4

 

This year's annual Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle takes place this Saturday 4th of July, and due to road closures in place between Kenmare and Killarney via Moll's Gap from 12.00-20.00, our shop will be closed for the day.

 

We've good news for the cyclists - while Avoca Moll's Gap store will be closed, our cafe will open while the annual Ring of Kerry Cycle is passing through Moll's Gap.  

 

Our Cafe will be open to all cyclists from 10.30am to 5.30pm and we'll also have a pop-up cafe outside for weary cyclists that would prefer a take-out.  

 

As our cafe is located after the climb from Kenmare, there's always a great party atmosphere - the climb from Kenmare to Molls Gap is considered to be the toughest part of the cycle.   On the upside (well, actually - downside), it's nearly all downhill into Killarney and the finish line, so lots of cyclists tend to celebrate when they reach us in Moll's Gap.  Check it out on the video (you'll see us around 1.28 mins in)

 

Everyone at Avoca would like to wish our staff members, Eileen, Siobhan and Derick the very best of luck, we know you'll do us proud.  We're looking forward to seeing much promised tweets throughout the day!

 

Irish TV will be broadcasting live and will be popping into Moll's Gap for a little while too. 

 

Oh, and one more thing, we'll be open for business as usual on Sunday 5 July.
