Sunday Sept 28th 2pm starting at Brockagh Centre, Laragh, Co Wicklow
Friends of Merlin are hosting a Charity/Sponsored walk on Sunday 28th September at 2pm in Laragh, Co Wicklow in aid of Dogs Trust. The walk follows 2 highly successful dog shows that Friends of Merlin ran in the summer in Bray and Greystones which raised over e1000 for Dogs Trust.
Walkers are encouraged to come out and enjoy the gorgeous scenery, autumn colours and a leisurely walk – with or without a four legged friend! You can take the pace at your own leisure – a brisk walk or a gentle stroll along the Wicklow Way starting from the Brockagh Centre in Laragh, near Glendalough, Co Wicklow. Minimum entry on the day E10 or sponsorship cards are available in advance from [email protected] or by calling 087 6267334.
Refreshments and a social gathering will take place at the end of the walk. Safe car parking is located at the Brockagh Centre and for those wishing to use public transport a local bus service runs from Dublin to Laragh www.glendaloughbus.com
Friends of Merlin is a group of local animal lovers led by Jon Jameson who has run the Bray Dog Show for well over a decade and the Greystones Dog Show for the last 22 years. Merlin was rescued about 10 weeks old and lived a long and happy life in the Wicklow countryside. In his lifetime, Merlin was well known in the Co Wicklow area through his educational school visits and parties for students teaching them about animal welfare and the life of a rescue dog.
