Charity walk planned

CLUB WEXFORD and South East Radio are organising a charity walk in aid of CWCW (County Wexford Community Workshop) on Monday, August 6. The walk will start at 10 a.m. at the Half Way House Pub, on the R746 road from Bunclody to Kiltealy.

The walk is called 'The Turf Cutters Trail' as it follows an old trail up the Blackrock Mountain, one of the Blackstairs Mountains beside Mount Leinster to Moaneer, where in olden times people cut turf from the mountain bogs to provide fuel for their fires and cooking each winter.

It's a 10k walk rising to 599 metres at the top of Blackrock Mountain where there are spectacular views of all of Wexford.

Damien Fitzhenry will lead the walk and will be on the Alan McGuire Afternoon Show on South East Radio each week giving advice on training for the walk and answering your questions.

Rory Murphy (The John Murray Show) is the chief organiser and route planner.
