Walkie-Talkie – Social Walking Group – This walking group is for people who are currently doing little or no walking.
There is lots of chat and always someone to walk along with. The walk is approximately 3km from start to finish with a bit of scooting built in along the way.
This is a very open and inclusive group and welcomes young and old alike, the walking route is accessible for buggies so parents and carers be sure to come on out and join in. The Walkie Talkies meet weekly on Monday mornings at 10.30am in the Courtyard of the Fermoy Community Resource Centre.

Fermoy Steppers – Operation Transformation (January 2015)
Operation Transformation 2015 – Jacinta worked alongside local ladies Sarah Irwin and Maura O’Leary to support them in setting up and running weekly walks within the town.
The Fermoy Steppers Walking Group was established with over 170 people registering to be part of this community wide health initiative.
The group developed very quickly into a fast paced walking group suited to people doing regular walking with good level of fitness.
Sarah Magner from Magners Pharmacy got on board offering weekly BMI checks throughout the duration of Operation Transformation which raised members awareness about the “know your numbers campaign”.
In February 2015 the Fermoy Steppers were filmed in action by RTE and Kathryn Thomas joined the Fermoy Steppers on a walk around the town.
The Fermoy Steppers completed the Blarney 5km Operation Transformation Walk in February and they also participated in the St Patricks Day Parade in Fermoy.
