About this Event

The ISA Fundraiser Walk and Talk event will be held on Saturday June 22nd , we would love for you to join us. We have created two walk options; a full day walk and a half day walk.

Location: Dublin Mountains Way, Tallaght to Shankill, Co Dublin.

Meeting Point: 8am, Saturday June 22nd , at the Tallaght Luas Stop.

Length of Walk: 9 to 10 hours including refreshment breaks.

What is the Walk and Talk?

This will be a social gathering and will provide an opportunity for those who stammer, their family and friends, or those with an interest in stammering to walk and talk along the 42km Dublin Mountains Way (DMW). The DMW offers stunning city vistas through forests and mountains and back to Dublin Bay. The entire route from Tallaght to Shankill is fully waymarked with the yellow walking man symbol. As the group will walk for between 9 to 10 hours, it is not suitable for children under the age of 16. We will be raising funds for Irish Stammering Association. The walk will be led by someone familiar with the DMW.

Join us on this epic walk across the Dublin mountains. You’ll never look at the mountains surrounding the capital city in the same way again!

How do I take part?

What fitness level do I need?
