About Dave Riordan

David was born raised and lived his entire life in Cregane Charleville Co limerick.
His interests in life were his family,GAA especially limerick hurling,shooting horse racing,he loved his point to points, he was a regular concert goer having travelled to see the Rolling Stones on three occasions and went to Punchestown in 2009 to see AC/DC perform…
David was most content when he was walking in the local fields with his 4 gun dogs or drinking a pint with his many friends.
In 2010 when Dave was fighting his battle with cancer two of his brothers Brian and Maurice decided to cycle the ring of Kerry to raise money for cancer.
Watching Dave fight his battle inspired both of them to become healthier and use their energy in a more positive fashion and never to take it for granted.
Both completed the Ring of Kerry in July that year raising €7500 for cancer in the process and the first person to congratulate them was Dave.
He vowed he would be cycling with them the following year and by then had already started his training.
In September of that year while out for pint with his friends and work colleagues Francie O’Shea, Pat Cullen and Conor Howard, Dave informed the boys of his plans to cycle the ring of Kerry and challenged them to cycle it with him to which they thought to be very amusing at the time!
