Walking Leaders

Hundreds of thousands of people around the country live with the effects of heart disease and stroke. Thanks to the support of our colleagues in cardiac and stroke care around the country, many are in good health. Still, however, some may be more at risk of serious illness if they catch the coronavirus.

Our mission is to protect their health and wellbeing, and so we have decided to suspend a number of our community services and programmes. We will review this decision in line with advice from the HSE and work to re-start these services as soon as it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, we will continue to focus our efforts on providing information, advice and support to people living with heart disease and stroke to help them stay safe. We’re also encouraging healthier members of the public to follow public hygiene guidelines. Because right now we all have to do our part to try to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and protect the most vulnerable people in our society.

For now, are are temporarily suspending our Walking Leader Training courses.

Thank you for your understanding.

Walking Leader training is aimed at people who wish to lead a group in their community or workplace. These courses will give you all the skills you need to inspire others to get walking with you.

Walking Leader Training Level 1 is for people interested in heading up a walking group in their own locality or workplace.

Walking Leader Training Level 2 is for those looking to lead walks outside their local area on the Coillte Trails and Fáilte Ireland Loops for example.

To enquire about walking route development or walking leader training courses please contact Tara tcurran@irishheart.ie

For now, we are not accepting any registrations for training due to the coronavirus.
