2020 Hill Walk.
This year's Hill Walk for St. Francis Hospice, will take us on a pleasant stroll around Howth. It is hoped to raise about €5000 for St. Francis Hospice. Watch this space for details later. Check back soon for more details
Map of 2020 Hill Walk route. Follow the route in a clockwise direction.
You should be in good health and used to walking.
Wear suitable clothing ,warm socks and comfortable footwear (boots with ankle support preferably).
Take account of the prevailing weather conditions and, if necessary, bring a change of clothing/footwear for the return journey. Sunblock may also be required (with a bit of luck!)
Carry a backpack with liquid and a light lunch for one stop.
The organisers will carry a first aid kit but it is advisable to carry a couple of plasters and blister pads.
Coronavirus. It will come as no surprise to you that the Hillwalk for the Hospice planned for April 19th will not now take place on that date due to the ongoing constraints caused by the Coronavirus.
However, I have not thrown in the towel completely and will keep the matter under review for the foreseeable future, in the hope that we might be able to reschedule it towards the end of Autumn.
We'll be in touch.
In the meantime, wash your hands, stay safe and try to get a walk in , bearing in mind the advice currently in force.
