Walk Of The Mullingar Monks

monks

Mullingar Parish Committee are organising a pilgrim walk on Saturday June 20th.  The idea is to re-create a day of the Camino Walk that the Mullingar Monks did in the Middle Ages and to increase people’s awareness of the Christian heritage in this area of North Westmeath.

The walk is 22km and starts at 9.30am from Fore Abbey and continue through Collinstown and Loughegar.  The walk will take approximately 6-7 hours to complete.

Registration will open soon for the event and pilgrim packs will be available at a cost of €10. The pilgrim pack contains a passport, pilgrim trail map and a scallop shell. Optional bus transport to Fore on the morning of the walk is also available at a cost of €5. The walk is a fundraiser for a memorial garden at the monks’ burial site in the grounds of the Cathedral of Christ the King, Mullingar.
