The annual Nathan’s Walk takes place in Killarney this Saturday morning at 4.15. We recently attended the prestigious launch in Killarney Town and a special radio feature will follow later where we will share interviews at the launch as well as recordings we shall do this Sat. morning. Having participated in the Walk last year it is truly a most amazing, impressive and moving event. Many thanks to Con and Geraldine Houlihan for arranging attendance at the Launch.
