Nenagh Walking Club will take part in this year’s 18th Kerry Charity Walking Challenge that runs from Friday, April 4 to Sunday, April 6. The challenge will be based in Dingle for the first time and will include a programme put together by Tippeary hillwalker and author John G O’Dwyer.
The climbs include Mount Brandon, Slievemish, Cosan na Naomh pilgrim path, Mount Eagle, a walk along a low level nature and heritage trail and a session at the Play-at-Height climbing facility in Dingle. This year’s challenge will raise funds for the visually impaired, along with other projects.
Accommodation will be based at the Dingle Skellig Hotel and will cost E159 per person sharing for two nights bed and breakfast and an evening meal. A E60 deposit is required. Further details on the weekend can be had from Nenagh Walking Club committee members.
The weekend in Clifden last October raised €3,200 for North Tipperary Respite Centre, National Council for the Blind, Thurles Knights of Malta, and Glenview Hospice Accommodation, Belfast.
