Walking festival launch tonight

The launch of this year’s Cavan Walking Festival, with 30 walks over 10 days, May 2-11, takes place later this evening.

The event, starting at Flemings Folly, Ballinagh, from 7pm also coincides with the last official engagement to by outgoing County Manager, Jack Keyes, who is set to retire from his role as chief at the local authority.

There will also be a special presentation made to Mr Keyes to mark his last official engagement, and an end to his 10-years term at the helm of the Council.

Cavan Heritage Officer, Anne-Marie Ward, said she is delighted with the success of the Festival in recent years, which incorporates a wide variety of walks accessible to persons of all abilities, from heritage rambles, to night walks and hikes for the more experienced such as the Cuilcagh Mountain Climb.

The festival also includes a packed programme of themed trails, rambles and hikes all led by walking leaders.

Walkers will relish connecting with nature, culture and heritage as part of the camaraderie of a group walk. All walks are lead by trained local community guides and take place at varying times of the day.

Pick-me-up refreshments are provided after each walk.
