Published 11 months ago 11th September 2021 by Editor

A local guard, along with his trusted colleagues, set off on a 70km suicide awareness walk on Wednesday to raise funds for C-Saw Tipperary.

A large group of supporters turned up to support Garda Mick Dempsey and his colleagues

Kilsheelan native Garda Mick Dempsey, who is based at the Garda College in Templemore, lead the way as he and his fellow walkers began their walk from the C-Saw offices in Clonmel.

The route chosen to walk, was from the C-SAW premises at Williams Street Clonmel to the Garda College in Templemore, a distance of approximately 70kms, passing by Cahir, through New Inn, Cashel, The Horse and Jockey, Thurles and onto Templemore.

Garda Dempsey`s original plan was to do this walk alone, however since sharing his idea with his work colleagues, they all wanted to get involved.
