Mental Health Day with Mental Health Ireland

Get Ireland Walking's fourth annual National Walking Day takes place on Sunday 24th September this year; as part of European Week of Sport.

It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the benefits of walking for both well-being and physical health and for everyone to celebrate the outdoors and #WalkHikeRunPushRoll.
