There will be a donation bucket at the 2 beans box behind the windmill and another in Skelper Quane’s later in the afternoon.

Anyone that signs in and gets a ticket or receives a medal on the day can then get a cup of coffee of their choice from the 2beans, who are sponsoring the event on the day.

They also have donation page on if you would like to make a donation.

This will be the 7th annual walk which was started by St Pats GAA club in 2014, the year club stalwart Todd died.

To date nearly €10,000 has been raised. Todd’s daughter Andrea says she is hugely grateful to everyone who has donated. and we are just giving back for the wonderful care and kindness that we received during Dad’s time there. Andrea also expressed thanks to Con Dennehy  who is sponsoring the medals.
