Day 14: The Long Walk from Rossport to Dublin - Fri 11th Aug 2006

DAY 14: Kilcock to Liffey Valley - 13.2 miles (21.3 km)
A short run into Dublin County after reaching the 200 mile mark just outside Maynooth, which was celebrated with a roadside feast of Wexford strawberries. A visitor from the Niger Delta joined in at Leixlip, and he was taken aback by the photographs on display on the trailer... images of oil devastation from his homeland. A timely reminder of what the people of Erris are fighting for. The final meeting took place in Newcastle, where health & safety, the global environment and a political discussion wrapped up the business end of The Long Walk.
