Slí na Sláinte

Slí na Sláinte, meaning "Path to Health", is an innovative scheme developed by the Irish Heart Foundation and supported by the HSE and the Irish Sports Council, to encourage people of all ages and abilities to walk for leisure and good health.  The initiative is made up of two components...

1. Slí na Sláinte Walking Routes

Mapped, measured routes which use attractive signage at kilometre intervals on established walking routes to help walkers identify the distance they walk.

2. Walking Leader Training 

Aims to train individuals in the community to establish and lead local walking groups.
