Afri: 30th Famine Walk

Afri’s annual Doolough Valley, Co. Mayo, Famine Walk takes place on Saturday 20 May with the theme “From Hunger and a Home and a Welcome?”  Registration takes place in Louisburgh from 12.45 and the walk begins at 1.30pm.

The walk leaders are - Donnah Vuma, living in Direct Provision and campaigning for asylum seekers rights; Abjata Khalif, a journalist involved in sustainable development in Kenya; Danny Cusack, involved with various issues and human rights organisations; with music by Joe Black.

As this is the 30th anniversary of the walk, a CD featuring some of the musicians who have played on the walk since it began will be available.

Shuttle buses will bring walkers to Delphi Lodge where there will be a ceremony before walking the 11 miles back to Louisburgh (a shuttle car is available as needed). Walkers are asked to contribute €24 including payment for the shuttle bus or to get more in sponsorship.
