CURRACLOE beach provided the idyllic setting for a summer solstice walk last week to mark the longest day of the year and raise money for the Hope Cancer Support Centre in Enniscorthy.

The evening began with an opening ceremony at 7.30 p.m. when everyone was welcomed to the event. A spokesperson for the organisers said it was a truly magical and wonderful evening.

After the welcome the people in attendance were invited to walk quietly along the beach where they availed of the opportunity to remember loved ones who had passed away while in the quiet but comforting company of those around them.
