Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh  joined members of the St Finbarr’s Pilgrim Way  to launch the inaugural National Pilgrim Paths Day, which takes place on Saturday 19th April. Pictured at the launch at St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin were  Heritage Council Chief Executive Michael Starrett, Chairman of National Pilgrims Path John O’Dwyer, Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh, Con Collins of Collins Press, and David Ross.

On Saturday April 19 thousands are expected to retrace their ancestral heritage as they take to Ireland’s ancient pilgrim paths to celebrate the National Pilgrim Paths Day. Supported by the Heritage Council, this new Easter Festival will see a nationwide series of walking and cycling events take place on Ireland’s medieval penitential trails.

In Co Cork the St Finbarr’s Pilgrim Walk is a two day event which leaves the Top of the Rock, Drimoleague on Holy Saturday 19th April and arrives in Gougane Barra on the afternoon of Sunday 20th April. Accommodation can be reserved at the Gougane Barra Hotel or the Top of the Rock Pod Páirc, Drimoleague.   For more details see www.pilgrimpath.ie or contact David Ross 0861735134
