Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny took part in a 112-mile charity cycle around the Ring of Kerry yesterday.

Kenny, who last week announced details of his new front bench, was joined by one of his appointees, tourism spokesman Jimmy Deenihan, who is a Kerry-based TD.

The pair hit the road at 7am yesterday, starting from the racecourse in Killarney, where they joined over 4,500 other cyclists. They were seeking to raise funds for Enable Ireland.

The cycle is billed as the biggest one-day charity fundraising event in Munster, and includes well-known sights such as Ladies View and Moll's Gap.
