Walking Initiatives

Welcome to Walking Week

Since 2003, there has been a ‘Welcome to Walking Week’ festival held every year. This is a joint initiative between the Roscommon and Sligo Sports Partnerships. It’s aimed at celebrating and promoting the joys and benefits of walking for all. It encourages people in the area to get involved in walking as a form of physical activity while also promoting the many scenic walking routes in the area.

The highlight of the week is when walking enthusiasts will converge on Dromahaire for a scenic 10k walk along the Sligo Way between Slish Wood and Dromahaire. This event is jointly supported by Sligo Mountaineering Club and the Curlew Walking club.
