Meath Local Sports Partnership and Sport Ireland have linked up with the OT team to promote National Walk Day on Saturday 12th January.
Organisers welcome all ages and abilities along on the day and would like to see families getting involved. The event is ideal for beginners to come out and give it a go. Children must be accompanied by an adult. In the interest of safety and out of respect to other walkers, dogs are not allowed.
