    Join Us & Walk Together for Peace

    Where: Glencree Peace Centre
    When: 12 noon on Sunday 20th September

    We've chosen a very moderate walk this year mindful that we will be adhering to Covid-19 guidelines. Setting out at 12 noon from the Glencree Peace Centre by road, we'll soon turn onto a forest track that winds gently uphill (there'll be a few muddy patches) until we get to the Old Boleys abandoned quarry. Round trip the walk is 6kms, approx. 1hrs 30 mins. On return to Glencree we'll gather for a barbecue, some live music and a chance to share our walking anecdotes from the day. Get your walking boots on!

    • Walk with 3 friends for an hour (240 mins combined walking) – raise €60 each
    • Walk 24,000 steps for peace – raise one cent per step
    • Rally your tribe - start a 24-hour peace walk in your area
