[Wicklow] IPSC Annual Sponsored Walk: Enniskerry Ramble – 1 October 2017

walk2017

This year the 11th(!) Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign Sponsored Walk will take place on Sunday 1st October 2017 – starting at 12 noon.

This year we will be taking one of the loop paths on a ramble around Enniskerry and its environs in Co. Wicklow. We will be setting off from the Monument in Enniskerry Town Centre, and finishing up with a meal and some liquid sustenance back in Enniskerry. The walk will take us on a ramble around the beautiful Enniskerry area including to an abandoned church where we’ll stop for a spot of lunch. In total, the walk will be about 8km, and take around 2.5 hours.

The last ten years’ walks have been enormous fun and raised a lot of money for the IPSC, as well as letting people get to know each other a little better and have a bit of craic together.

IMPORTANT: If you are interested in coming along and getting sponsorship (there is no minimum sponsorship fee!) then please email info@ipsc.ie with your details, put ‘Sponsored Walk’ in the subject title and we will send you on a sponsorship card and any further relevant info. Alternatively, you can phone us on (01) 8727798.

How to get there and back:

The easiest way is to get the 44 bus from STOP 340 at around 10.50am behind Pearse Street Garda Station on Townsend Street in Dublin City Centre – the bus terminates in Enniskerry. A bus also runs to Enniskerry from Bray DART Station. We’ll be meeting outside at the Monument in Enniskerry Town Centre (map here) at 12pm midday – keep an eye out for some Palestinian flags flying.

What to bring:

Everyone should bring a packed lunch, enough to drink, warm and waterproof clothing, hiking/walking boots. The walk is not difficult, but participants should have a reasonable level of fitness. People will also be required to sign an indemnity form prior to the start of the walk. If you have any inquiries specific to the walk (as opposed to sponsorship etc) please contact Pat on 085 7432293.

We hope to hear from interested people soon!
