Croagh Patrick hike on Sunday for 16-30s

Do you fancy a hike of one of Ireland’s most famous mountains, ‘Croagh Padraig’, locally known as ‘The Reek’?

The trip is on Sunday, October 7, for those aged 16-30 and costs £15. The fee will include transport, tea/coffee on the way to Croagh Patrick and dinner on the return journey.

A spokesperson for the Derry Diocesan Catechetical Centre which is organising the trip, urged potential participants to come along and “experience your faith in a new way”.

“Join other young people from local parishes for a great day’s fun, adventure and prayer. If you are a participating on the Pope John Paul II Award, this would be very worthwhile in reducing your hours.”
