IRD are collecting information for a Walking App

IRD are currently in the process of collecting information for a Walking App for the Duhallow Area that will be going live in early 2023. At the moment they are looking to gather a log of any points of interest within the area; these can be scenic viewpoints, wells, monuments, walks, standing stones etc., basically anything that may be of interest to locals and/or visitors.

If anyone has any points of interest in their area that they think should be promoted, please pop them into a word document and send it back to me by Wednesday December 14th.

When filling out the form please make sure that each point of interest has a location, and you can give as much information as you like – there is an example of the document required if you email me for it. If anyone would prefer to talk to Alannah over the phone you can call her on 029 60633.

She was interviewed by our very own Seanie

Active Community Walking Programmes

Millstreet has been included in a number of Active Community Walking Programmes kicking off across Cork communities during May. The Get Ireland Walking Active Community Walking Programme runs for 8 weeks and aims to support the creation of vibrant walking communities throughout Ireland.

The programme facilitator will work with communities to increase the capacity and potential of people to become more active through walking. The programme places an emphasis on sustainability so members are given the skills to continue coordinating their walking group after our qualified facilitator steps away after 8 weeks!

The group walks will hopefully take place on the same day and time each week for the 8 weeks, but this is subject to discussion with your walking facilitator. The exact meeting locations will be sent to you in an introductory email before the start of the programme.

The first meeting will take place in Millstreet Day Centre towards the end of May – click on the link below to book your place:
