Press Release: Solidarity Books Fundraising Hike 25th & 26th August 2012! Sheeps Head walk & Dursey Island
Issued: Friday 4th August
Solidarity Books is organising its annual fundraising hike with experienced hill-walkers, and this year we will be taking in some of the most headland beautiful walks in Ireland, and also Ireland’s only Cable-Car!
So, the plan for the Hike is as follows:
Sat 25th 9am: Leave Cork Opera House. That day’s walk will be on the Sheep’s Head, from Kilcrohane to the end of the Peninsula and back.
Camping on Saturday night for those who want to stay and do both walks; back to Cork for people just have Saturday available.
Sunday 26th 9am: Leave Cork Opera House. Sunday’s walk will take in Garinish at the end of the Beara peninsula, then take the only cable-car in Ireland to do the loop of Dursey Island. This is a great spot for Whale and Dolphin watching, so fingers crossed! Back to Cork for everyone on Sunday eve.
People are welcome to stay for Saturday and Sunday or just any one of the days. Sponsorship Cards are available from Solidarity Books – please take one.
Let’s head for West Cork!
