The Annual Western Care Walk will take place Saturday September 10th starting at Aasleagh Falls and finishing up at Westport Quay.
It is a beautiful route along the Western Way following the Erriff River for the first 5km before heading towards the Sheffrey Pass via Tawnyard. From Sheffrey the path heads towards Shanvalley Beg and passes close to Maum before heading through the forest and coming out at the back of Croagh Patrick. From there it is mainly downhill via Skelp and Belcare back to Westport Quay. The total route is about 35km.
Buses will leave Westport Quay at 7am with everyone walking by 8am. We have portaloos in 2 locations along the way and while most of the route is off the main roads it is easy to arrange a pick up if any one decides to opt out along the route.
It is a really well marked beautiful walk on our doorsteps and a great way to contribute to an organisation which does so much for the people of Mayo.
If you are interested in taking part, call or text me on 087 6624898.
