Day9: The Long Walk from Rossport to Dublin - Sun 6th Aug 2006

Sunday 6th August 2006
Strokestown - Termonbarry - Longford
Raining again! 11 walkers started at Strokestown.

The calm before the storm of the next day's exertions. 200 km were completed before a stop in Termonbarry and the symbolic crossing of the Shannon, entering County Longford and Leinster.

Edgeworthstown was the venue for meeting number five, where frank views were voiced and the locals stated their own concerns. One thing was becoming clear; the Celtic Tiger was a myth as far as people were concerned, and the authorities cared not at all for ordinary folk.
