Cycle Against Suicide was founded by Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen as a result of an appearance on RTÉ’S documentary, The Secret Millionaire. The programme inspired Jim to continue to use his skills and influences to help raise awareness of mental health in Ireland and signpost people in need, to the considerable supports available for suicide prevention in Ireland.

During Cycle 2016, the Cycle Against Suicide Movement visited in excess of 28 towns/villages and communities across 15 counties with a combined population of 1.45 million.

Cycle Against Suicide operates a Homestay Programme that sees people from across the Island of Ireland open up their homes to participants of the Cycle each year, providing them with a warm meal, a chance to freshen up and a bed for the night. This provides the opportunity to people to lend their support without necessarily having to get on a bike.

This years Cycle starts in Dublin on Sunday 23rd April travelling North and South of the country and arriving into Fermoy on Wednesday 3rd, May 2017. One of the vital cogs in the wheel is our Homestay Coordination Team in which is being led by John Hennessy and Ellen Ni Dhunai and they are looking for help to find the 200 beds needed for the Cyclists and Crew.
