Heart Foundation Walk

The local Annual Heart Foundation Walk takes place on Friday December 27 from Grange Car Park, Cooley. Venora Hovelt has organised this family-friendly walk for over 15 years. It is a firm favourite with many walkers and non-walkers alike explained Vera who outlined the details of the event.
“This year, we are revisit the success of the Molly and Rooskey walking loops, which boast amazing view of the Mournes and pass through hidden tracks and trails. We will see the Deserted Village and the Lime Kilns, and hear about past life on the Cooley Peninsula. Above all the walk helps to banish post-Christmas blues, filling the lungs with fresh air,” she added
Those interested in taking part can meet at 11.30am in the car park opposite St James’s Church Grange (eircode A91 EA33) and the walk takes about 2.5 hours, mainly on the flat, but with some slight initial inclines. Afterwards, relax and enjoy a complementary draw with a bowl of soup in Long’s Pub, around a traditional log fire. Good walking boot/shoes and rain gear are recommended. Runners or jeans are not suitable. Children aged 6+ welcome but no dogs allowed.
Suggested minimum donation €10 per adult, €25 for a family of two adults and two children. All donations go to the Irish Heart Foundation. Heart disease/stoke are a major threat to health in Ireland. The IHF provides information and training in the prevention of Heart Disease/strokes, operates an Advice Line and supplies defibrillators to organisations.
