The guide will depart at 11.00am and it should take approximately 2 hours to complete.

The walk is open to anyone who wishes to partake and help raise funds for Aware. Please note, for health and safety reasons, there is a limit to the number of people who can attend this event.
Aware is one of three charity partners supported by Friends First. Other partners include the Irish Cancer Society and Lessons for Life.
Aware provides a range of vital support and education services to people impacted by stress, depression, bipolar and mood disorders. As a mental health charity, Aware are aligned with our role as a health insurer and as an employer committed to supporting our staff in healthy living and awareness. A recent review of income protection claims showed that the main illnesses which cause claims are due to orthopaedic, cancer and mental health conditions. The importance of mental health awareness and services offered by Aware is highlighted clearly in these claims. For more information about Aware, visit aware.ie.
