High Nelly Bicycles
Vintage & classic bicycles have surged in popularity over the past few years, and it's part in thanks to a number of High Nelly Associations which have popped up across Ireland. One such company is High Nelly in Limerick.
Tomorrow (Sunday 13th of July), in BallyJamesDuff, Country Cavan, a group of them are coming together to hopefully break the world record for the most High Nellys gathered in one place.
It's all in aid of the charity Attracta Doherty Pink n Gold Fund, founded by Kevin Doherty. Our reporter Louise Denvir went down to investigate.
