About this event

Walkers, communities and businesses across West Waterford and South Tipperary are being asked to come to Ardmore on Sunday, September 26th to show their support for the newly-reopened St. Declan’s Way. A 10km fundraising walk takes place with proceeds going to the ongoing maintenance and management of this historic walking trail. The date coincides with National Walking Day and is a great opportunity to get out and about while supporting a worthy cause.

The historic St. Declan’s Way walking trail has long been part of the heritage and folklore of West Waterford and South Tipperary. The trail recalls journeys made by Declan in the fifth century from his monastery in Ardmore northwards to Cashel. Thanks to significant voluntary effort over the last few years, with funding from the Department of Rural & Community Development, the trail has been renewed and reopened. Old laneways were cleared, new signs replaced old ones and all trail infrastructure is now in place. St Declan’s Way got the green light from Sport Ireland last June.

With a huge interest in pilgrim trails nationally and internationally, St. Declan’s Way has the potential to be a great asset to tourism, business and communities. Indeed, feedback so far from walkers and businesses along the trail has been very positive.

The St. Declan’s Way Management Committee spearheaded work to reopen the trail. The committee’s attention is now turning to future management, maintenance and marketing. The walk around Ardmore is a chance to enjoy part of the St. Declan’s Way trial and support the ongoing work of the committee.

The 10km looped walk will take in the wonderful scenery and heritage of this renowned seaside village. Starting at Halla Deaglán on Main Street from 10 a.m., walkers will proceed north along Ardmore beach, then loop around by Ballynamertinagh and Bóthar Ard, come back into the village and finish around the spectacular Cliff Walk.

Refreshments will be served in Halla Deaglán after the walk. We would like to thank the Cliff House Hotel, Ardmore and Flahavan's of Kilmacthomas for sponsoring the refreshments.
