In addition, we’ve partnered with the Sligo Champion to produce a trail walkers news slot, which will appear weekly in the newspaper. if you are part of a walking group and want your events or walks promoted, or if you are looking for new members, or if you are just someone who wants to get to walk in the company of others, feel free to drop us a line to

Consider it your walking notice board, and it’s completely FREE. Our aim is to get as many people out and about enjoying the countryside and the fresh air, and this is especially important now that we are getting into shorter days and longer nights, it’s much more important for our physical as well as mental health to stay active, get some fresh air and to enjoy the walks that surround us.

Check out the Sligo Champion from next Tuesday 10th October where we will have our first article, and stay tuned for more walking news, plus info on great competitions coming your way soon!
