Father and daughter team Peter and Natasha Murtagh will speak at a public meeting in Galway on Tuesday January 24 on their amazing 900km trek together across Northern Spain along the famed pilgrim path of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela.
Their story inspired them to write a book, Buen Camino, which has received a lot of media attention and they are coming to Galway to support local heart and stroke charity Croí who are currently promoting two charity treks on the Camino – one in June and the other in September of this year.
Peter and Natasha will tell of their amazing five-week journey which started by scaling Croagh Patrick in Co Mayo and ended up after 900 kilometres across the Camino in the magnificient cathedral city of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. They will speak about their walk through the lush Spanish countryside, the quaint towns and villages they passed, the plethora of pilgrims they met and the bond they shared along the way. For anyone who has done the Camino, or who is thinking about doing the Camino, this is a talk not to be missed.
This free public talk will take place in the Westwood Hotel on Tuesday January 24 at 7pm. Croí representatives will be available on the night with details of their 2012 Camino Trek Programme. These are once in a lifetime trips, the benefits of which will remain with you for a long time to come.
