Munster Rugby is backing Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI) and Tour de Munster in their quests to raise vital funds for the six Munster branches of DSI.

Announcing its latest charity partnership with Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI) Munster Branches and Tour de Munster, the year-long partnership will see the DSI Munster branches and the popular 600km charity cycle benefit from the support and backing of a renowned and respected organisation.

The funds raised each year as a result of the Tour de Munster make a huge difference in enabling DSI Munster branches to continue to provide much needed supports and services to their members. The DSI branches deliver ‘all-through-life’ support to people with Down syndrome and their families from Speech and Language Therapy to Occupational Therapy and much more.
