Local TD Mattie McGrath helped launch a new charity partnership between Diabetes Ireland and the Nire Valley Comeragh Bogtrot Walking Festival.

This independent walking festival, which has been taking place for a number of years is based out of Ballymacarbry and takes place on March 29 this year.

Mr. McGrath, who himself has diabetes, said - “I am delighted to be helping launch this charity partnership as diabetes is a condition I know all about. We have some of the most beautiful landscape in Ireland here on our doorsteps in the Comeragh Mountains and combining a walk through this area while fundraising for Diabetes Ireland is a great fit”.

The walking options in this festival are a 32km self-guided walk and a 20km self-guided walk for very experienced walkers and a fully-guided 17km walk for anyone who wants to take part, enjoy beautiful scenery and be part of a group hiking the mountains.
