Betty McGrath.

THERE’S just days to go until a 12km walk in aid of Kerry Hospice which will also remember a much-loved north Kerry woman.

The Betty McGrath Walk will take place on Saturday, September at 12 noon from the Junction Bar in Camp to mark the first anniversary of her passing.

Betty McGrath from, Moyessa, Listowel and formerly of Baltovin, Ardfert, was diagnosed with cancer in August 2021 and passed away a month later on September 14.

She received amazing care from the staff of the palliative care unit and the Moriarty and McGrath families wanted to give something back. A gofundme page has been set up to raise funds and has already raised over €11,000. It can be accessed by clicking here.

The organisers have secured extra parking at the back field of the Junction Bar. However if the day is wet, they recommend carpooling. There will be Kerry Hospice buckets on the day for donations.

Each person on arrival will receive a free raffle ticket for a chance to win a signed Irish soccer jersey, kindly donated by Irish interntional John Egan, and two bouquets of flowers sponsored by the Moriarty and McGrath families.

If participants wish, they can stop at the 6km mark and return to their cars from Bunavoonder strand. There will be complimentary food after the walk at The Junction Bar.

The walk takes place from 12 noon on Saturday, September 10 from The Junction Bar, Camp, walking along to Killelton Oratory on the Dingle Way, then on to Bunavoonder Strand, Bunahow, Kilgobbin Church of Ireland, Camp Upper, Ashe’s Cafe, Stepping Stones, Curraduff and back to The Junction Bar.
