Fr. Tony Coote, PP of Mount Merrion, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease earlier this year. He has started a walk from Letterkenny to Ballydehob to create awareness and raise some much-needed funding for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Research Motor Neurone.
If parishioners have friends or relatives along that western route, perhaps they might ask them to come out and show support as the walk passes through their area. Parishioners are also very welcome to join to walk for an hour or two as well.
The walk concludes in Ballydehob on Monday 6th August.
Full details of Tony’s walk are available at wwyc.ie
