Camphill Communities of Ireland
“Siul Eile walking programmes are great way not only to get active, but mainly to meet your neighbours and discover parts of the community you rarely if ever visited before. “

BNest Incubator Programme 2016/2017 Participant

By using the natural resources, mainly hills and mountains, around us we try to get people more connected to their local area.

With the added knock on effects of keeping local heritage and stories alive, the physical benefits of walking programmes and the stress release – we are really hoping to make the great social impact of meeting others and forging a community spirit.

The idea was simple – “Let’s go for a walk”.

One walk become a walking programme, few participants became a large community, neighbours became friends, hidden roads and places were rediscovered.

Siul Eile was born.
