The 2019 Mayo Roscommon Hospice Memorial Walk will take place on Sunday December 1st as part of our Shine A Light Tree Lighting Ceremony in Knock.

The walk will take place in a loop route around Knock and will start at 5pm. It will be a candlelight event this year, with tealights being provided to those who walk.

Once the walk is finished, it will arrive back to the Pope Francis Plaza for our tree-lighting ceremony, which will start at 6pm. We will have entertainment and treats for everyone who is there.

Those who take part in the event all in memory of a family member, friend or work colleague. Participants have the option of wearing a personalised t-shirt, bearing the name of their loved one. These t-shirts are provided by Mayo Roscommon Hospice.

To take part in this year's Memorial Walk you must register in advance. You can complete the online registration form below, call our office on 094-9388666 or email

For those who opt to pick up their t-shirt on the day of the event, there will be an opportunity to do so from 4pm at St John's Rest and Care Centre in Knock on the day of the event.

The funds raised will go towards providing vital palliative care services in both Mayo and Roscommon and will also help in the construction of our new Roscommon Hospice and the running of the Mayo Hospice, which has been completed.
