Planning on getting more active for the new year? Like to have some fun with your neighbours and friends? Join in the Straide’s own version of Operation Transformation – Sráid ag Siúl – Straide Walking. A series of walks are planned each Sunday on 25th January, 1st February, 8th February and 15th February. For each walk all are invited to meet at 12.30pm at the Davitt Community Centre. There is no charge and all are invited and welcome. Further information from James Larkin (083) 1236169.
The 1st of February walk is a special ‘Walk for Brigid – “Brigid’s 5k”. It is in loving memory of Straide’s dear friend and champion, Brigid Cogger. The walk follows her 1st Anniversary Mass in St. Peter and Paul’s Church at 11am. There is a registration fee. Proceeds will go towards the purchase and fitting of a bench in memory of Brigid in Straide. The remaining monies raised will be split between a Straide Charity and Cancer Care West.
