The route is as follows:
I hope to walk around 25km every day (around 16 miles for the old schoolers!), starting on Saturday, 7th March from the Hotel Reception.
I will be going through Clonroche, Enniscorthy, and then follow the N11 thereafter. I have agreed to be kind to traffic, so I will not walk at peak times, as the least of my intentions is to annoy anyone in a rush.
I hope to finish on Friday, 13th of March in St Stephen’s Green by 11.30am. There, weather and planning permitting, we hope to give away the €10 000 prize to the most deserving nomination. Therafter I am going for a SERIOUS pint in one of my favourite Dublin establishments, Davy Byrne’s off Grafton Street – and hope that some of the staff, and hopefully some new mates will join me.
I have to stress that I am not about to attempt any record breaking, as I am a “big” girl, and just the completion alone will suffice for me. I am accompanied by Kevin, who is also the deputy here, and we hope to meet some kind people along the way that will give me a place to stay. If not, I am hoping that some of my colleagues might have a room to squat in! Only time will tell.
I have nothing truly planned, except to have a laugh, but I know I will need all the encouragement I can get, so if you happen to be driving past – give us a wave or a hoot, and maybe even meet us in Dublin?
It’s quite simple really – anything for a bit of a laugh!
