Darkness into Light, Murroe 2018 – the walk held in Murroe was a great success, helped in no trivial way, by all the support from the community, whom we want to thank – the organising committee, Murroe-Boher Community Council,  stewards, those who provided refreshments, helped set up the hall and the course, Frank Ryan for the use of his field for parking, local businesses (see Murroe Facebook page!), Glenstal Boys’ Choir, Irish Red Cross, Garda Síochana, and the Benedictine Community for their generosity in providing such a beautiful peaceful location to us.   We are looking forward to next year already!
