The St Johns GAA  club in partnership with The North West Hospice and  Acquired Brain Injury Ireland, Sligo will be holding a Walk & Talk 24 hour relay on Sept 27th and 28th in The Community Field, Cuilbeg. The challenge is for 12 teams walking in relay, continuously for 24 hours, to walk a combined total of 1000km during that time. Sponsorship cards are available from Seamus at 085 2498067.
