Walking Buddies, a programme organized by a group of Limerick ladies are introducing their new walking plan from Dooradoyle to Cliffs of Moher in aid of Irish Cancer Society on September 29.

If you enjoy walking but want to get more from your walk, why not join “Walking Buddies”?

Walking Buddies is a group of male & female walkers who meet every Thursday evening at 7.30pm outside Collins Bar, Dooradoyle.

They walk for approximately 5km every week and return to Collins Bar for complimentary Tea/Coffee. The group was set up three years ago by Limerick ladies Eimear Bulfin, Rachel Lucy, Susan Ahearn and Mary Flynn as they wanted to meet new people while getting active.

With support from local businesses Collins Bar, Limerick Sports Partnership and Limericks 95fm, the group has become a great success. Eimear and Mary completed the Slí na Sláinte Walking Leader Training Course, with the Irish Heart Foundation last year and now offer the group physical activity guidelines and how they relate to walking, a walking program for different fitness levels, Advice on issues such as posture, technique, stretching, intensity, clothing, and safety issues. The group welcomes both male and females from all over Limerick at all fitness levels and club membership is €15.00.

“ A good fitness level for this walk is essential. So we are planning a walk/hike on September 29 to the Cliffs of Moher. This walk is in aid of the Irish Cancer Society and is being organised by Walking Buddies Limerick.” said one of the organizers, Eimear Bulfin.

The walking group will be carpooling on the day from Collins Bar in Dooradoyle leaving at 10am. There is a cost of €10 for members and €20 for non-members. All of the proceeds will go to The Irish Cancer Society.
