Cosán na Naomh – 25th August 2020- subject to change
This walk will be fully guided by a voluntary group and will include talks from Isabel Bennett, archaeologist, at many of the sites along the pilgrim route.
Fee: There is no fee but donations towards the upkeep of the walk will be welcomed.
Now fully subscribed for now, but we are keeping a waiting list, so please contact us if interested in joining us on the day.
Prior booking: Due to Covid-19, prior booking is required and places will be initially limited to 25 participants. To book, please email email@example.com with your name, address and contact number. You will receive a confirmation email. We are hopeful that the number of participants can be increased in line with the guidelines that will be in place at the time and for that reason, we will create a reserve list, if required.
We meet on Tuesday 25th August 2020 at Ventry Beach car park from 10ish and the walk commences at 10.30 am. Walking boots and gear are necessary. Also bring packed lunch and water. There will be a break at Gallaras for lunch. Toilets and water are available at this location. Walkers can arrange to return to Ventry from Cill Maoilchéadair or at Baile an Lochaigh at the base of Mount Brandon. The last part of the walk is over Rinn Chonaill Hill. The walk finishes at the other side of this hill. We do not climb Mount Brandon. Time/distance: approx. 5.5 hours and 16km. We arrange a return bus for those who require it.....approx 10 euro each, depending on numbers and bus company and Covid-19 guidelines.
A stamp for passport will be provided on the day or, alternatively, the stamp can be obtained at Ventry Post Office or Dingle Tourism Office.
There are many accommodation choices depending on budgets, personal tastes etc. The trail head at Ventry is only 5 minutes by car from Dingle town. Look at www.dingle-peninsula.ie for a comprehensive accommodation list.
Updates will be provided on this page, and further details regarding Covid-19 arrangements will be provided closer to the walk date.

Dear Friends of Mount Melleray Abbey,
We hope you are all keeping well during these strange and difficult times. Be assured that we remember you and all your intentions in our prayers and Masses here in the monastery. We are delighted that so many join us on the live-stream each evening for Compline and each Sunday morning for Mass. Thank you for all the positive comments and messages.
As the country prepares for the first phase of the easing of the COVID-19 restrictions on Monday, 18 May, please remember that the basic recommendation is that we should stay at home as much as we possibly can and that, apart from shopping and essential journeys, there is a nationwide restriction on travel outside of 5km from our homes (this will extend to 20km from 8 June until 20 July).
We know how much you would love to be able to visit Mount Melleray and we would love to be in a position to welcome you all again but unfortunately this is simply not possible at the moment. With the travel restrictions that are currently in place we do not envisage opening any part of the monastery – church, guesthouse, shop or café – until the end of June at the earliest. We feel it is important not to be encouraging people to travel beyond the permitted distances from their homes and neither do we want to expose our staff or the community to any potential risk while the restrictions are still in place.
Conscious that many of you would like to visit to say a prayer or request a Mass, we are happy to facilitate your requests for prayers, Masses and candles through our Facebook page.
Each day we remember the needs and intentions of all who ask our prayers. You can send us your prayer requests by sending us a Message with the details. The Message button is beside the Donate button at the top of our Facebook page. Unfortunately due to the large number of prayer requests we receive it is not possible for us to acknowledge each one individually.
Many people have been requesting Masses for themselves, their friends and family or for those who have died. You can request Masses by sending us a Message with the details. You can send the offering online using the Donate facility. If you require a Mass Card please add €5 to your offering for the Mass and make sure to send us your postal address.
Those who visit Mount Melleray like to light a candle at the shrines of Our Lady or St Therese or before the image of the Divine Mercy in the Public Church. Br Seamus will be happy to light candles each day for those who send us a Message with the request. To leave a donation for the candle please use the Donate facility.
We will continue to live-stream Compline at 8pm each evening and Mass each Sunday morning at 10:30am and we look forward to welcoming you to Mount Melleray Abbey soon. Please keep well and stay safe!
Fr Richard and Community ...
