PHOTOS: Glorious Weather Makes For Successful Kerry Camino Weekend Out West

Posted by


Derry O’Shea entertained the Kerry Camino walkers at the Railway Tavern, Camp following Day 1 of Kerry Camino, pictured with KC Chairman, Mike O’Donnell.

HUNDREDS of people took part in the Kerry Camino over the weekend in what was another great success.

Adrienne McLoughlin gives an account of the walks and supplied the photos below;

“Friday was unexpectedly sunny, and made a huge difference to the Tralee to Camp Sliabh Mish mountain route, with over 160 walkers setting off from St. Johns Church, Tralee.

Saturday’s walk saw approximately 220 pilgrims set off from Camp on a journey to Annascaul. Conditions were different, rain to start, very windy and cold, but clearing up for the Inch to Annascaul section.

We defied the weather forecast for Sunday and the sun shone unexpectedly for us all on the final day of Kerry Camino 2017.

A large group set off from Annascaul, enjoying the beauty of the Kingdom at Minard, Lispole and over the hills to Dingle, where Certificates were presented to all our finishers by Kerry Camino member, Billy Nolan.

Another successful walk weekend completed, the feedback is very positive and our event gets bigger every year!

Thanks to all who helped make the event so successful, our volunteer walk guides, bus drivers, luggage handlers and Civil Defence – too many to name individually. Many hospitality providers benefited hugely from this event, with over 150 walking each day and staying locally.” Scroll down for Adrienne’s photos…
