A number of walks, 16 in total, will take place across the county on Saturday, January 18, with the main county walk taking place in Castlebar, meeting at Castlebar Tennis Club from 10.30am with a start timetabled for 11am.
The walks, either 3km or 5km in length, will be led by local leaders who will be on hand guide participants through the walk and also to give advice about follow on-programmes etc. Please note that all walks commence at 11am, except Kiltimagh at 9.30am, with meeting time at 10.30am for all walks starting at 11am.
