Moyle Walk

The Moyle Walk, an event run by the Belfast Battalion, was the brainchild of the late Gillan Kennedy, a former officer of the 77th Belfast Company. He envisaged a long distance walk similar to the 22 mile Mourne Wall Walk, organized by the Youth Hostel Association Northern Ireland (YHANI) and the Ardnavalley Walk run by the Scouting/Guide movement.

1978 saw the first walk, starting in Ballycastle and finishing in Glanariff Forest Park. The 18 mile walk wound its way through the Glens of Antrim, a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty and was well attended, running for 25 years until its Silver Anniversary in 2003 to be replaced by The Moon Walk.

Participants received a cloth badge or, on several occasions, a Tee Shirt to acknowledge their completion of the event.
