Donegal County Council is calling for volunteers to take part in a walkability audit in Dungloe as part of the Donegal Age Friendly Programme. 

This walk will take place on Wednesday March 6 from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

 Social Inclusion Co-ordinator with Donegal County Council Mairead Cranley explains what the walkability audit is about.

“We need people of all ages and abilities, young people, older persons, people with disabilities, pregnant women, parents with toddlers and buggies, wheelchair users and visually impaired persons to help shape Dungloe to be Age-Friendly” she said.

“The Walkability Audit requires the leisurely group walk along a selected route of one to three km around the town, observing and recording all the good and bad elements of Dungloe from a walking viewpoint. Each group will have a leader who will record all comments and observations and we want volunteers to just walk, participate, comment and observe”.

The walk will start and finish at the Waterfront Hotel and refreshments will be served


Anyone who would like to take part can call Mairead Cranley or Shaun Boyle on 074 91 53900 or email [email protected].
