Charlie’s epic journey will end tomorrow, Friday, in his native Glenarm

Tomorrow morning Charlie Magill of Shane O’Neill’s Glenarm sets off from Dreen, Rasharkin on the last leg of his epic walk, which started in on the South coast of Cork 13 days ago, back to his home village of Glenarm. 52 year old Charlie has walked 26 miles a day, (the equivalent of a marathon) to highlight the right for a child to have contact with both safe biological parents, and the right for parents to have contact with their children.

The sponsored walk is raising funds for highlight Parental Alienation

During the past two weeks Charlie, plus a few supporters and family friends have made their way up through the centre of Ireland, spending the night in his caravan parked in the car park of GAA clubs along the way.

Today, Thursday, he made it back into his native county when he crossed the bridge at Portglenone and on along to St Mary’s Rasharkin at Dreen. He was accompanied on today’s walk by many of his family circle, including his son Shane and his girlfriend Eliza Hodgson, who flew over from the Lake District to be with him on the last two legs.
