Five-Time All-Ireland winner Aidan O’Mahony will participate in our 7th annual Camino Trek with CRY Trustee Liam Herlihy. This year we’re walking the final 100 km of the Camino Primitivo (the original Way).
Liam lost his daughter, Niamh to Sudden Cardiac Death SCD in 2011 which left him determined to help others that have lost loved ones to sudden death. Now as advocates for CRY, Aidan and Liam are heading back on The Camino together and are asking the public to join them again and walk the last 100km to raise awareness and much-needed funds for CRY.
When we asked Aidan if he’d join us again in September, he told us “I was so moved by the Camino walk last year and the stories I heard from those affected by Sudden Cardiac Death that CRY has helped. I am happy to support them as an Ambassador. I am asking for people to join me on the Camino this year so we can raise awareness and funds for CRY.
The Camino offers an escape, a haven for self-reflection and an opportunity to disconnect. It is a way to get away from your daily life and connect with nature while also helping to raise money for CRY at the same time.
The Camino is suitable for almost anyone and is as rewarding as it is challenging, so if you are looking for a new challenge in 2020, test yourself mentally and physically this year and walk the Camino for a great cause.
The 8 day, 7 night trip will begin in the walled city of Lugo, after two days the trail will join the Camino Frances in Melide, with the final destination being Santiago, where you will be able to get the Compostela, the traditional certificate of pilgrimage on completion.
The CRY Camino will take place from September 19th to 26th 2020.
