The Castleisland branch of the Kerry Hospice Foundation is preparing for its annual Good Friday walk.

This year the route will commence and finish at the library car park as it did, for the first time last year.

Last year, Nana Beas Café management and staff gave up their day off to provide tea and scones for participants after the event.

Upcoming Nuptials

Despite being in the height of preparing for her upcoming nuptials, Rosaleen Higgins has again announced that refreshments will be provided there again after the walk.

Walkers are asked to gather in the library car park by 10.50am for the 11am start, the walk will go straight up through the town heading out towards Tullig and around the Black Road to the Priests’ Cross.

Branch Left at Garvey’s

The walkers will branch off left at Garvey’s SuperValu and up Barrack Street and back to the starting point in the library yard.

Participants are asked to take note of the route leaders and to stay with the main group at all times for safety reasons.

Major Fundraiser

The walk is one of the major fundraisers for the society each year. Members of the Castleisland fundraising branch urge you to come out and walk or run if you prefer this Good Friday, April 19th.

If required, sponsorship cards are available at Jack Shanahan’s Haven Pharmacy.

Personal Donation

However, most people prefer to give a personal donation on the day.

All funds raised in Kerry for Hospice remain in Kerry and so all contributions will go directly towards the running cost of the in- patient unit at University Hospital Kerry.
