APRIL 19 will see many people in various parts of the county take to the roads for the Annual Good Friday walks.

Over the years, a huge amount of money has been raised for the KHF along with the Palliative Care Unit.

This annual walk was the brainchild of the late Ted Moynihan who set up the Tralee walk over 23 years ago and it has gone from strength to strength over the years, spreading all around the county.

Dr Patricia Sheahan and Radio Kerry’s Deirdre Walsh were on hand to launch the walks on Thursday evening at the Palliative Care Unit.

The Tralee walk has been renamed the Ted Moynihan Walk this year and after 23 walks they are looking forward to welcoming big crowds outside The Grand Hotel at 10am.

This year there will over 25 walks in total in all corners of Kerry and the Iveragh group in south Kerry will host six walks alone!

Elsewhere, the Killarney walk will take place in the glorious surroundings of Muckross Park, while the Annascaul walk taking place on Inch Beach.

There will be many walks in Ballyheigue, Milltown, Ballybunion, Listowel, Killorglin, Castlegregory, Fenit, Tarbert and Kilcummin.

The public have always been so supportive and the Kerry Hospice Foundation are hoping they turn up in their droves to walk for charity.
