Peace Walk 2022




Join us at Glencree on Sunday 18 September 2022 for our 6th Annual Peace Walk fundraiser as we mark UN International Peace Day which calls for 24-hours of non-violence and ceasefire, and help us raise funds for our peacebuilding and reconciliation work.

This year, as Ireland and Finland celebrate 60 years since diplomatic relations were established in 1962, the Embassy of Finland in Ireland is pleased to support Glencree’s peace walk. Peace is one of the themes of this year’s celebrations given that both countries have strived for peace at home and employed joint peacekeeping missions for global peace.
