This is a first of its kind pilgrim event, which will feature the opportunities for pilgrim walking in both Ireland and Spain. It takes place in the Bookworm Bookshop, Thurles at 7pm, and is an evening not to be missed. The evening will open with a reception and tasting session for local foods and drinks from along the Camino routes in Spain and also the cuisine local to the Irish pilgrim paths.
This will be followed by a talk from author and Chairman of Pilgrim Paths Ireland, John G O’Dwyer. He will speak about his experiences – some sad, some insightful, some funny – while completing the Irish Pilgrim Paths when writing his bestselling guidebook to these routes He will also speak about the new Irish Pilgrim Passport and St Declan’s Way which opens this year as a fully waymarked pilgrim route linking royal Cashel with monastic Ardmore.
The final speaker of the evening will be Michael Walsh of the Irish Camino Society. Michael is one of Ireland’s most experienced Camino walkers and has already completed the entire pilgrim route from Holycross Abbey in Tipperary to Santiago in Spain. He will he give hints for those new to walking pilgrim routes and also speak of the new Celtic Camino, which combines pilgrim walking in Ireland and Galicia. Admission is free. All comers welcome. Don’t miss it!
