Glen­cree Peace Walk

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

AL­MOST €10,000 has al­ready been raised for the sec­ond An­nual Glen­cree Peace Walk which will take place on Sun­day, Septem­ber 23, in the Wick­low hills.

The 10km Glen­cree Peace Walk was launched last year to co­in­cide with In­ter­na­tional Peace Day and raises both funds and aware­ness for Glen­cree, the Repub­lic of Ire­land’s only cen­tre ded­i­cated to peace and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion.

This year’s walk will set off from the cen­tre at 1 p.m. and will be of­fi­cially started by former Taoiseach Ber­tie Ah­ern.

The walk is suited to all abil­i­ties and skill lev­els and walk­ers still have time to signup and fun­raise for Glen­cree’s peace-mak­ing ini­tia­tives. Walk­ers this year include the Ger­man Am­bas­sador to Ire­land, Mrs Deike Potzel, with many more sign­ing up daily.
