A GROUP of Limerick people took a stroll on the wild side, when they took part in a firewalk for charity.

The group of over 30 people took part in the daring activity to raise money for Spinal Injuries Ireland. The walk, which saw people go barefoot across hot embers, took place at the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel Last Friday evening.

Organiser Caitriona Hickey said she was delighted with how the charity event turned out. 

“It was amazing. I didn’t think I would do it, I am so proud of myself and everyone here,” said Caitriona.

The group received a training exercise from master fire-walker, Brian Moore, who led them through their baptism of fire. 

“The most important tip for fire-walking is to think about the last step, and not the first step,” said Brian.
