Checking in & future walks

Hello there. Just dropping in to say hi. While I don’t blame you if you don’t recognise me, my posts may be a bit more frequent now.

I haven’t been writing as often as I would like. The week goes by and before you know it, it is the weekend and I usually have plans most weekends. I long for sleep in! I might have to wait until my Camino before that, however.

I have just finished working on my side project Shamrocks and Shells for Camino Society Ireland. Let’s just say that I’m glad that it’s a quarterly ezine and not a monthly one. It takes a lot of work, but it is worth it. You can view it here.

Now to concentrate on my new Canon EOS camera, taking a few walks and me!…yes, me! Everyone needs time for themselves, don’t they?

My next walk will be on the 23rd of March when I walk from the Pro Cathedral in Dublin to Maynooth. It has recently been recognised as one of the suggested walks on the Celtic Camino, provided you can locate sellos. The Pro Cathedral and Maynooth College give them. It’s a fab walk along the Royal Canal and while you can bike it, I like to walk it. I will let you know how I get on.

9 weeks left!

  1. Wow … I wasn’t aware you could get sellos from the Pro Cathedral and Maynooth College. Just last week myself and two walking buddies walked the Royal Canal from Castleknock to Maynooth. You are so right Dave it’s a lovely walk. One of my buddies remarked how sections of our walk reminded him of that lovely section of the Camino Frances just after Boadilla del Camino when you walk alongside the Canal de Castilla ! Great memories !

    We did our walk last Wednesday (Feb 27th) and a section of the canal path from just before Louisa Bridge Leixlip to the 13th Lock was blocked off due to bank side renovations taking place. This meant a detour ‘inland’ of about 2kms which took us close by the entrance of the Intel complex before we could get back to the Canal path. Notwithstanding the detour it was a wonderful walk in glorious sunshine finishing off with a well earned pint of sidra and a cheese toastie in Maynooth village . I’d love to know how to get the sellos at the Cathedral and the College.

    By the way the Shamrocks and Shells ezine is just brilliant. Many thanks for all your hard work .
