Put on your hiking boots for the Peter McVerry Trust Camino

Time to lace up your boots for the postponed Peter McVerry Trust Boyne Valley Camino.

The annual event will now take place on Saturday, July 9. The housing and homeless charity opened its first regional office in Drogheda in September 2018 and is active in Louth, Cavan and Monaghan.

The 25km loop ride will take walkers through the heart of the Boyne Valley. Leaving Dublin on Saturday morning July 9, participants travel an hour by bus to St. Peter’s Church in Drogheda to take the historic trail. The walk takes approximately 5 hours, with a lunch break along the way. Upon returning to Drogheda, participants enjoy a well-deserved rest and refreshments before returning to Dublin by bus that evening.

Entry for the 2022 Peter McVerry Trust Boyne Valley Camino is €50 per person, with participants encouraged to raise an additional €100 each. The entry fee includes a participant t-shirt, a return bus to Drogheda from Dublin and refreshments after the walk. All funds raised go to the Peter McVerry Trust to help help more homeless people find their own homes.
