Day 8: The Long Walk from Rossport to Dublin - Saturday 5th Aug 2006

Mrs Dowd kindly brought the Shell to Sea walkers in for tea and biscuits.

Another great day on the road, with beeps and shouts and thumbs-up and fists of defiance and solidarity. Tea and sandwiches were served up to the crew by a kindly woman on route, just before the half-way point at Cruachain, the ancient site of inauguration of the Kings of Connacht. More tea on the road including a stop in Tulsk, and a slap-up feed in Strokestown finished the day's walking. That night Roscommon Town hosted the fourth public meeting.
