Despite current challenges the annual Royal Canal Walk took place earlier today, Sunday the 16th of August to raise funds in aid of the Irish Children’s Arthritis Network. This annual event has raised over 40 thousand euro for a variety of charitable causes since its inception in 2012.
Organised by Edward Byrne and his cousin David Byrne of the O’Byrnes of Downes, the event highlights the role that clan societies can and should play in modern Ireland.
The walk is also the ideal platform for the Clan O’Byrne annual gathering and helps to maintain important connections between clan members.

Well done to all who took part and raised awareness and much needed funds for this important charity.
