As the turf cutting season is active at the moment we would ask all turfcutters to take all unwanted fertilizers bags etc. home with them as they can be very unsightley and damaging to the environment. We also hope that the people using the walks for recreational purposes will also be mindful when disposing of their rubbish. Your consideration and care for this beautiful facility will be much appreciated.
THE KERRY STEP CHALLENGE
The Kerry Step Challenge developed by Healthy Kerry is a six-week event designed to promote and support the people living in the county to stay active and connected . It involves virtually completing routes in the county by accumulating daily steps.As national COVID-19 movement restrictions are in place, participants do not visit the routes to complete the challenge. Instead, participants accumulate an equivalent number of steps that would be taken to complete each route. A total of six routes in Kerry of varying distances and step counts are included in the challenge. Participants can select to complete the required step count of as many of these routes as they wish over the duration of the event individually or as part of a team.
