Thomond Park is the final destination for the upcoming charity walk organised by the Donal Walsh #Livelife Foundation.

The walk will start at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday and finish next Saturday in Limerick.

"We are taking a week out to bring Donal's #Livelife message from the Ireland v Scotland game at the Aviva Stadium to the Munster v Cardiff Blues game in Thomond Park, stopping along the way to talk with schools and rugby clubs," explained Donal's father Fionnbar.

The walk will take in overnight stays in Dublin, Naas, Kildare, Portlaoise, Roscrea and Nenagh where local rugby clubs will accommodate the walkers.

There are 50 Transition year students involved in the project from Donal's own CBS The Green and Mercy Mounthawk schools in Tralee.

Munster Rugby and the IRFU have given their full support to this project.

Joe Murphy, honorary secretary of Munster Rugby, commented: "Donal was both a Kerry man and a Munster man at heart, but the message he gave was a global one, so we are delighted to join in continuing the conversation that this young man started."

The Donal Walsh #Livelife Walk, will make it's way with collections in each of the towns along the route daily.

The first collections will be made around the Aviva Stadium on Sunday and the final collection day will take place around Thomond Park at the Munster v Cardiff Blues game the following Saturday.
