MapThe talk is free to attend but we will have an opportunity to give a donation at the end of the talk to go to Alan`s chosen Cerebral Palsy Charity.

I have a talk which I've given a few times which is about the whole journey I made, 400 miles from Manchester to Dingle. As I did this walk in memory of my sister who had severe cerebral palsy it outlines what drove me to do the walk, including a bit about my childhood, idea for the walk, fundraising, preparation (or lack of), the Irish sea problem, the walk, kayaking, walking in Ireland and then the insights and other things I learned from the experience.

We kayaked for 22 hours over the Irish Sea despite only having been in a sea kayak just twice before.

The incredible 410-mile challenge was in memory of his sister, Aoife, who had severe cerebral palsy. She could not walk or talk, and spent most of her life in care. She sadly passed away in 2011.

Alan felt the need to commemorate her life in a meaningful way and the trek was his ‘pilgrimage’ - from his adopted home of Manchester, to Dingle, where he grew up.
