The money raised this year will be split between the Worldwide Relief Fund and diocesan projects closer to home – last year the walkers raised more than £3000 which was sent off to the Worldwide Relief Fund. 

MU member Loraine Watt, who took photos on the day, said afterwards: “We had a super walk, the weather was great and the atmosphere was electric.”

The Connor ladies even found themselves in the limelight when they were interviewed by a reporter from RTE’s Morning Extra programme!
