Council Launches Walk of the Month Awareness Campaign

16th February 2024

Launch of Walk of the Month Campaign 1

To encourage residents to get active and raise awareness of the walking routes around the district, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has launched a Walk of the Month awareness campaign.

Every month in 2024, across the Council’s social media channels, a walk of the month will be presented with photos, a video, and the Council’s Walking Cards. The walks within the Walk of the Month Campaign have been carefully selected to cover a variety of the Fermanagh and Omagh District Area, be animal and family friendly and have a range of grade levels.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council walking cards promote walking opportunities, trails, and routes within the district. There are 46 walking cards in the set with each card providing an overview of the route, points of interest, distance, route type, grade, and facilities.

Commenting on the new walking campaign, Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Cllr Thomas O’ Reilly said,

“The Council is committed to improving the lives and wellbeing of our communities. Through this Walk of the Month campaign, we hope to inspire our residents to go walking and get active outdoors, while socialising, experiencing and appreciating our beautiful district.

While out walking, we encourage everyone to share their photos of the Walk of the Month by using #FODCWalkoftheMonth on social media. Also, most importantly while out walking, we ask everyone to ensure they leave no trace, and play their part to ensure our District is both welcoming and attractive and the environment is protected.”

The Leave No Trace Seven Principles are designed to protect and conserve the natural landscapes and ecosystems as well as the cultural heritage to ensure that everyone can enjoy and benefit from being outdoors.
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is an official member of Leave No Trace Ireland and is committed to promoting the Leave No Trace Seven Principles which are: dispose of waste properly, respect wildlife and farm animals, leave what you find (nature), be careful with fire, plan ahead and prepare, be considerate of others and travel and camp on durable ground.
