Day 3 (10 May) they will commence in Newcastle and finish -  after a total of 66 miles - in Delamont Park on the evening of the 10th May.

Chairman Murnin said: “I wanted to do something active, which would showcase the beauty of the region that I am proud to live in. The Mournes is a haven for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts and our tourism potential is growing annually.

“I am delighted to be taking on this 3 Day Charity Walk challenge and to use this unique opportunity to raise money for 3 local charities namely: Northern Ireland Air Ambulance; Glebe House and Newry Gateway,” the Chairman added.

The route is divided into 3 days, but has been designed so that on each day there are opportunities where local schools, Councillors, supporters and walking groups from each area are invited to join the Chairman to walk 3 miles for a £3 donation to the charities.
