Punchestown Walking Sunday

With the annual Punchestown Racing Festival coming up next week, it’s opportune to remind local people of the tradition of Walking Sunday associated with the event, writes Brian Byrne.

This year the McAuley Place charity in Naas will benefit from the day. McAuley Place provides independent living facilities for the elderly.

The day offers a fun excursion for all, whether very active or leisurely, beginning with a 2-mile Fun Run along the ambulance track at 1.30pm. Naas Rugby Club is organising this, and sponsorship cards are available from the Club.

A Dog Walk and Dog Show sponsored by Irish Dog Foods Ltd will offer an incentive to come out to dog lovers, while family entertainment will feature throughout the afternoon.
