The Galway Memorial Walk is Back

Always a poignant, heart-warming event, The Galway Memorial Walk in aid of Galway Hospice returns on September 11th. Find out more here...

The Galway Memorial Walk, now in its 17th year, is one of Galway Hospice’s main fundraising campaigns and a very beneficial part of their annual calendar.

"It is because of each individual’s participation in the Galway Memorial Walk, that we can continue to provide the care necessary for our patients and their families living with a life-limiting illness.” - Charlene Hurley, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Galway Hospice.

By participating in the Galway Memorial Walk, you will continue to play a very important part in ensuring the free delivery of essential Inpatient Care, Community Palliative Care, Day Care and Bereavement Support services to those affected by life-limiting illnesses, for as long as they are needed.

Those who take part in the Memorial Walk do so in memory of a family member, friend, neighbour or work colleague who has passed away, with many wearing the name of their loved one on special personalised t-shirts provided by the Hospice. It is an event that is dear to many people’s hearts and one that will be especially appreciated this year, as we meet once again for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.

This year’s Galway Memorial Walk will take place on Sunday 11th September, commencing from the Claddagh Hall at 12noon. To register go to or call the fundraising department of Galway Hospice on 091 770868. All participants must register.

Siúlamaid le chéile agus tacaíonn muid le chéile – We walk together and support one another.
