An estimated 300 bikers will don their safety helmets today for the Charity Motorcycle Fun Run in aid of the Irish Kidney Association.
It's hoped that the event will raise over €6,000 for the organisation.
The 120 mile route is due to begin at the Esso station at Borris-in-Ossory in Co. Laois at 11 o'clock this morning.
It will pass through Offaly, Tipperary and Kilkenny and will finish up at The Highway Inn in Laois.
