Ireland's Pilgrim Passport

The event will begin at 9.15pm on Friday April 15th in the Sneem Hotel, Sneem, Co Kerry. The passport offers an opportunity to walk 5 paths and receive a pilgrim stamp for each. The passport is then forwarded to Ballintubber Abbey to obtain a Teastas (Certificate of Completion) , for Ireland’s pilgrim paths.

On the evening John will also talk about his own experience of walking the 5 pilgrim walks that must be completed to obtain the Teastas.

The five paths are: St Kevin’s Way, Co Wicklow; Cnoc na dTobar and Cosáin na Naomh, Co Kerry; the Tochar, Co Mayo and St Finbarr’s Pilgrim Path, Co Cork.

All are welcome to attend and admission is free.
