If you enjoy walking but want to get more from your walk, why not join “Walking Buddies”.
Walking Buddies is a group of male & female walkers who meet every Thursday evening @ 7.15pm outside Collins Bar Dooradoyle.
They walk for approx. 5-6K every week & return to Collins Bar for complimentary tea/coffee. The group was set up three years ago by local ladies Eimear Bulfin, Rachel Lucy, Susan Ahearn & Mary Flynn as they wanted to meet new people while getting active. With support from local businesses Collins Bar, Limerick Sports Partnership & Limericks 95fm the group has become a great success.
Eimear & Mary completed the Slí na Sláinte Walking Leader Training Course, with the Irish Heart Foundation last year & now offer the group physical activity guidelines & how they relate to walking, a walking program for different fitness levels, advice on issues such as posture, technique, stretching, intensity, clothing, & safety issues.
The group welcomes both male & females from all over Limerick at all fitness levels.
We also hold walks/hikes every 6-7 weeks.
Meet outside Collins Bar, Dooradoyle, Limerick
