Efforts of Maracycle riders deserve our support

The political and security situation in Northern Ireland is much different today than it was in 1984 when the first Co-operation North Maracycle took place, giving people the opportunity to show that they wanted peace and reconciliation.

Yet the peace programmes funded by Co-operation North still have a role to play in bringing together communities who have a legacy of suspicion and mistrust to overcome.

Those who take part in the Maracycle from Belfast to Dublin and back again deserve great credit for their efforts in raising invaluable funds for these programmes. They also deserve our support through sponsorship. It is a cycle which requires considerable training and dedication from its amateur participants and we applaud them.
