Thousands of people across Ireland are set to take part in the biggest ever RTÉ Operation Transformation Nationwide Walks event this weekend at more than 80 venues across the country. In Mayo there will be walks talking place in Kiltimagh, Ballinrobe, and Ballyhaunis.
This year Dr Eddie Murphy will be with Mayo Operation Transformation leader Mary Diamond in Kiltimagh, starting and finishing in the Market Square, with walks also taking place in Ballyhaunis (Friary Field ) and Ballinrobe (The Green ).
