Fermoy Branch Annual Sponsored Walk

The 43rd Annual Walk-in aid of the Fermoy Branch Multiple Sclerosis Society takes place on Sunday the 16th of June from 10am–4pm (Father’s Day), in Glansheskin Forest Recreation Area (Kilworth Wood). 

We are delighted to be back again this year in the beautiful forest landscape and our committee members are looking forward to meeting you all on the day.

Our voluntary branch here in the Fermoy/North and East Cork area, like all other branches across the country are a support network for people and families living with MS in our community, and on our renewed walk we will have fun while at the same time raising much needed funds. (No amount is too small)
