Following on from the success of their first walk around Castleisland town last month, members of the Castleisland Day Care Centre team have scheduled another for Wednesday 31st October at 4pm.

They will start out from the centre and they’re inviting members of the public to join them and for refreshment afterwards.

Halloween Afternoon

With it being Halloween afternoon we may even bump into a few ghouls along the route or see some trick or treaters out and about.

Castleisland Day Care Centre hosted its first walk on the afternoon of September 26th in in and around the town.

The walk was organised by the staff of centre after they learned about the week of walking activities in Kerry.

A Great Springboard

Let’s Get Kerry Walking the Distance was a great springboard to get us into action” according to nurse manager Marcella Finn.

“We were delighted with the turn out and were blessed with beautiful sunshine for our first ever walk and eighteen adults and one child, in a buggy, took part.

“Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the feel good factor from the activity, the companionship and of course the cup of tea afterwards in the Green Door Restaurant.

A Regular Occurrence

“Such was the success of the walk that everyone who participated agreed that it should be a regular occurrence.

“It was decided there and then that the group will meet on the last Wednesday of every month.

All we need now is a name for our group,” Ms. Finn concluded.
