THE annual Kerry Hospice Foundation Good Friday walks will take place right around the county on April 15.

In total there are 22 walks taking place from Ballinskelligs to Ballybunion and everywhere in between.

The walks have been hugely supported over the years but the get-togethers could not take place over the last two years due to COVID restrictions.
