On Tuesday September 10th Peter Hynes launched the 3rd annual Foxford walking festival, at the Foxford Woollen Mill.
Mr. Hynes said he wanted Mayo to be “the walking capital of Ireland” and that this festival was good for the businesses and the community of Foxford. He also thanked all the land owners around Foxford and Mayo for their support of these and other walks in the county. Mr. Hynes was presented with a certificate of honorary life membership of the Foxford Ramblers Walking Club by Mr. Des Moore.
Other speakers on the night included Michelle Mulherin TD and Councillor Jimmy Moloney. They both agreed that the Foxford Walking Festival was a great asset to the town and the surrounding area.
All three dignitaries announced their intention of participating in the festival. Des Moore, Festival chairman, thanked the three speakers and the audience for their attendance and he went on to thank all those who have helped to make the festival a success to date.
