Kildare North Labour General Election Candidate Emmet Stagg and Maynooth Labour Local Area Representative Angela Feeney presented the proceeds of the Tony Smith Memorial Walk 2018, totalling €2,242, to Maynooth Senior Citizens Committee on Sunday April 15 at the Senior Citizens Easter Tea Dance at Maynooth GAA Club.

The Walk which  was held on Sunday 18th February and is organised by Maynooth Labour Branch, is an annual event since 1979.

The Walk was named in honour of Tony Smith who was treasurer of Maynooth Labour Branch and whose idea it was to hold an annual event for our Senior Citizens when he passed away tragically at the young age of 33 in 1982.

The organisers of the Tony Smith Memorial Walk would like to thank everybody who took part, all those who sponsored the walkers and the Management of Carton House for allowing them to use Carton Estate for the Walk.
