Monday 1st April – Margaret Ridge Memorial Walk in aid of Galway Hospice

It’s that time of year again!! The annual Margaret Ridge Memorial Walk will be taking place on 1st April (Easter Monday) with all proceeds being donated to Galway Hospice.  The walk will begin at Flannery’s Bridge, Kylesalia and will finish at Ardmore, Connemara.  Everyone is welcome to take part in this fantastic 6 mile sponsored walk in memory of the late Margaret Ridge.

This Walk has been taking place since 2002 and, since then, it has raised the phenomenal amount of €100,560.73 for Galway Hospice!  This year, the Friends of the Loughconneera Walk are organising the Walk once again and are inviting everyone to come along and support Galway Hospice.  This group have been amazing supporters of Galway Hospice over the years, and deserve huge credit for continuing to organise this Walk and raise huge sums of money for Galway Hospice.  THANK YOU!
