All funds raised by Cycle4CrohnsColitis are paid directly to the Cycle4CrohnsColitis Fellowship administered by the Beaumont Hospital Foundation.

The primary objective of Cycle4CrohnsColitis is to fund a Royal College of Physicians of Ireland Fellowship. This Fellowship doctor will provide -

  • One-to-one patient care and support for people with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Research the effects of this incurable disease on the day-to-day lives of those who suffer with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis*

*Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is the umbrella term used to describe disorders that involve chronic inflammation of your digestive tract. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are IBDs.

A patient care and support service is not currently available in Ireland and would radically change the isolation and untreated side effects for people with inflammatory bowel disease.

The research under this fellowship will be published and will assist inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) professionals and patients in terms of future supports. The supports are badly needed to provide dignity, normality and give people a quality of life. 49% of people have
lost or had to leave their job because of their illness.

Change can only ever arise where it is informed by hard facts and the verifiable data. This research will deliver the data and assist future advocacy campaigns, medical interventions and change in a meaningful and positive way globally.

€70,000 is required to pay for the IBD Fellowship and this is the minimum target for the Cycle4CrohsColitis Campaign.

This money will be raised through various fundraising initiatives to include Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training events for solicitors, Attracta and Ultan cycling from Paris to Nice in September with the Paris2Nice Charity, corporate donations and sponsorship. The cycle from Paris to Nice will be self funded by Attracta and Ultan with all fundraising monies going direct to the Cycle4CrohnsColitis Fellowship Fund administered by Beaumont Hospital Foundation.


I have a dream that I’m turning into reality! Help me and my fellow Crohn’s disease & ulcerative colitis warriors on our journey by pledging funds to our fellowship.

On Thursday 12th September, we are hosting a continuing professional development event at Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Ennis Road, Burtonhill, Limerick.  The event topics are -


All proceeds from this event will be donated to Cycle4CrohnsColitis an initiative by Attracta O’Regan, supported by Beaumont Hospital Foundation and the Law Society Finuas Skillnet.
