Michelle Mulherin TD Launches the 4th Annual Foxford Walking Festival

On Monday 15 September, Michelle Mulherin TD launched the 4th Annual Foxford Walking Festival at the Foxford Woollen Mill.

Michelle has been a strong supporter of the development of walking and other outdoor activities in Mayo generally and also in the Foxford area. The intention is to stimulate local tourism and the provision of recreation opportunities for our community. She is a keen walker and has previously participated in many walks in the area in support of a variety of causes and for personal enjoyment. Michelle’s support is genuinely appreciated by the organising committee.

Note from Chairperson of Foxford Walking Festival

It is that time of year again. It seems like no time has passed since last year’s successful festival. This year we have added some new routes and modifications to existing popular trails. It is hoped to provide as wide a range of experiences of the great variety of walking routes available around Foxford. These might also tempt you to return to explore additional walks and other areas in this beautiful county.

In keeping with our County Managers desire to make Mayo “the walking capital of Ireland”, it is hoped our 4th Annual Walking Festival will continue to deliver for locals and visitors alike. Again, I would like to place on record our thanks to all the land owners around Foxford and Mayo for their support of these and other walks in the county. I also thank all those who have helped to make the festival a success to date.

Comment from Brian Quinn, Client Services Manager, Fáilte Ireland

"Foxford Walking Festival is an ideal example of a community run festival. As an experience off the Wild Atlantic Way, it draws in visitors from near and far, to enjoy the glorious scenery and incomparable welcome of north Mayo. I'd like to wish the organisers and Foxford Ramblers Walking Club all the very best for this, the 4th Foxford Walking Festival"
