Camino Talks with Aidan OMahony: A Charity Camino with CRY Ireland

Written by Caitlin

All-Ireland Kerry footballer and Dancing with the Stars champion Aidan O’Mahony joins us to talk about walking the Camino de Santiago for charity with CRY Ireland.

Aidan is a Gaelic footballer who plays for Kerry, here in Ireland. He has 5 All-Irelands, 3 NFLs, and 10 Munster Championships to his name among his many other accomplishments. He is also an ambassador with CRY Ireland.

CRY aims to raise awareness of Sudden Cardiac Death or Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, as well as provide free counselling services to those affected by these conditions. This Camino fundraiser is raising money to support the running of their free-phone line and other work. Read more on their website.

CRY has done two charity fundraising Caminos with Follow the Camino in 2017 and in 2019.

The route that they walked in 2019 was the Camino Frances from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. This year they are walking the Camino Portuguese from Tui to Santiago.

Aidan tells us about his experience on the last Camino and why he is excited to join the next one in September 2022.
