West Cork Camino Summer 2020

September 20, 2020 - September 27, 2020

Open only to XirCammini Members.

Some 200 years prior to institutional Roman Catholicism reaching to the British Isles Celtic Christianity was flourishing.

After the overwhelming success of the Irish Caminos Summer 2019 – where 60 Maltese XirCammini trekkers joined another 60 Irish trekkers from the Cork, Kerry and Ballintubber societies, XirCammini was planning to walk the Irish Caminos in Summer of 2020; But if you want to make God laugh .. share with him your plans! it was not to be due to Covid-19.

With a safe corridor anticipated between Malta and Ireland we are planning to walk the West Cork Camino in the footsteps of St. Crohane and St. Finbarr in September 2020.

We will be walking from Sheepshead, through Kilcrohane, Glanlough, Bantry and Kealkill to Gougane Barra across the West Cork Peninsula, experiencing spectacular scenery, greenery and sea views.

The event is open only to XirCammini Members and may or may not covered by the MTA Insolvency Fund.

PLEASE NOTE these series of treks are not for the faint-hearted! They require training, discipline, stoicism and … a sense of humour.

XirCammini is a membership-based NGO. We are neither a travel agency nor a tour operator. As a membership-based association, collectively, we are a consumer and, where applicable, utilize the services of authorized travel agents and/or tour companies.

An information meeting on upcoming member events will be held closer to the date for XirCammini members interested in this event. Please note that no deposits are being collected as yet because of the Covid uncertainty.

Inquiries are to be channeled to: information@xircammini.org or via our FB Page
