Cork Sports Partnership and Get Ireland have relaunched their Active Community Walking Programme over the last few weeks. The aim of this programme is to establishing walking groups around the city and county which are open to the entire community. A facilitator from the Cork Sports Partnership will guide the programme and the group will be given the tools to develop an action plan to allow them to continue walking into the future. Walking is a safe, sustainable and long-term way of looking after our physical and social health. If you would like help setting up a community walking group or you would like to join an existing group contact Alison at achambers@corksports or visit
