Walk for Life 2017 - Clonea Beach (Dungarvan) - Tuesday 28th February

Waterford Sports Partnership were delighted to see such a great turnout for the first two walks in the Walk for Life Series for over 50's & people with a disability. Despite the very wet and windy conditions fifty four brave and enthusiastic leisure walkers strolled the newly developed Waterford Greenway Project from Shanacool (Durrow) walking along the old Waterford to Dungarvan Railway Track on Tuesday 14th February.  Walkers enjoyed beautiful views of the rugged coastline in addition to walking through Ballyvoile Tunnel and the seven Arch Viaduct. Special thanks to Tom O’Mahony from O’Mahony’s pub in Durrow for hosting the walkers for tea, coffee, scones and a well lit fire!


There was another great turnout for the second walk despite the blustery morning, fifty two leisure walkers enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the Anne Valley in Dunhill on Tuesday 21st February. Highlights of the walk included views of the castle, the magnificent wildlife and walkers returning to their childhood with the numerous fairy doors along the 4.4km route. On completion of the walk, everybody enjoyed the hospitality at Dunhill Enterprise Centre for tea, coffee and scones.

The five week series includes walks on the Waterford Greenway, Shanacool (Durrow), Anne Valley (Dunhill), Clonea Beach (Dungarvan), Tramore bay and Lismore Towers and gives older adults and disability groups a chance to get out and get active whilst enjoying the beautiful Waterford countryside. The series of walks are suitable for leisure walkers, however we do advise you to check the accessibility of walks with us in advance. All you need is suitable walking shoes (runners are ideal) and suitable clothing for the weather.

Our third walk will take place on Tuesday 28th February at 10.30am along the beautiful landscape of the internationally awarded ‘blue flag’ Clonea Beach, Dungarvan. There are numerous options for walkers to take in the fantastic beach scenery or begin walking towards the new Waterford Greenway at Scartore.

The meeting point in Clonea is the public car park near Clonea Beach at 10.30am. Walkers will need suitable walking shoes (runners are ideal), warm clothing and a waterproof jacket.
