Charity Walk – 9th March

There was a fun local walk on Sunday 9th March to raise much needed funds for the Kilfenora community music festival (given the disappearance of council/arts funding). 30-40 people of all ages started from Linnanes pub at 14.00, turning left at the Kilfenora mart to do the loop back to Kilfenora. The weather wasn’t the finest, but spirits were undaunted. Many thanks to all for participating and donating.
