Nano Nagle Walk 2021

Lovely to see so many schools take part in the The Friends of Nano Pilgrimage of Gratitude and Hope – a virtual walk from Nano Nagle Birthplace, Ballygriffin, Co Cork, Ireland to the burial place of Nano at Nano Nagle Place, Douglas Street, Cork from 19 – 26 April 2021, anniversary of Nano’s death in 1784.

The journey, 35km long was scheduled to be undertaken by walking 5km each day. Along the way, participants were invited to think of Nano Nagle, her life and work, her great faith and compassion for the poor and also hope as we think of the great challenges of our own time and especially of our lives during Covid-19.  Prayers were offered for each other, those who are sick and those caring for them and wisdom for those making decisions that affect us all.
