BEST FRIENDS AIDAN Murphy and Paul Quinn are almost finished their 15,000km cycle from Dublin to Sydney to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society and the Alzheimer Society of Ireland.

On reaching Bangkok, the boys got a bit emotional about the whole thing, and at some ungodly hour, Quinn decided to get a tattoo of a bike on his right arse cheek.

TheJournal.ie was told “both faces and bum cheeks were red” the next day.

The boys left Ireland on 1 September 2012 are due to reach Sydney on 20 April. Murphy and Quinn are funding the trip themselves, so all monies raised, €24,000 so far, will be split evenly between the two charities.
