Joyce walked the trail and wild camped with her tent, and spend some nights in accommodation. She was well looked after by many wonderful trail angels along her way. Thank you Joyce for the "rose-of-the-day" and sharing your journey with us! Below is a photograph of Joyce in the Ballycastle Tourist Office with her Ireland Way certificate and a video from "Day 3" of the trail. You can check out all 44 of Joyce's videos from her adventure on the trail on her Youtube channel.

Joe completed the Ireland Way on the 7th of April, probably making him the first person to complete the trail in 2019!
Michael Quinn who completed the Ireland Way in 40 days in 2018 was recently nominated for two awards and went on to win both! The first was the Lidl Community Hero Award and the second was the Most Inspiring Adventurer of the Year Award from the Irish Adventure Film Festival. Michael won these awards in recognition of his epic achievement which includes raising over €10,000 for the charities Jigsaw and the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust.
Michael is now releasing videos of each stage of his trek along the Ireland Way trail. Here is his experience of Stage 1 - Beara Way which takes three days to walk; Castletownbere - Adrigole - Glengarriff. Micheal gives you an insight into just how tough the Ireland Way is, but also how rewarding.
