Walking Silvermines Launch

On Sunday 21st August 2011, the project Walking Silvermines was launched in Silvermines, Co. Tipperary. The launch took the form of a walk of the route, leaving St. Odhran’s Hall, Silvermines, at 10am, followed by lunch in the hall,  and another walk of the second circuit after lunch. Copies of the guidebook Walking Silvermines were available, and stickers for use as part of the Guidebook Economy.

The weather gods were kind and it didn’t rain much. Thanks to all who traveled from near and far and made the day such a great one.
