Long distance walker and writer, Dermot Breen (aka ‘The Man with the Camino Tattoo’), is about to embark on his third 1,000 kilometre trek in memory of his late wife, Jacqui, and to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. This time he is tackling the rugged Ireland Way, which stretches from Castletownbere on the Beara Peninsula in Co Cork to Ballycastle on the North Antrim coast, a journey that will take him five to six weeks to complete.
In 2015, Dermot walked the entire Ulster Way around Northern Ireland and in 2016 he walked the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain. In 2017, he took a break from long distance walking to concentrate on writing and has since had two books published charting his physical and emotional journeys since he lost his beloved wife of 28 years to ovarian cancer in January 2015. He sets off on the Ireland Way on 20 June.
