For the last few years, I’ve been volunteering for a great mental health charity based in the North-West of Ireland called Havin’ a Laugh. Havin’ a Laugh was founded in 2013 by Blaithin Sweeney who wanted to promote positive mental health through life-enhancing activities.

Cuilcagh Boardwalk Trail near Belcoo, Co. Fermanagh, has gotten extremely popular over the last couple of years, not only for its famous “steps to heaven” social media posts, but also for the wonderful bog-land habitat it traverses, and great views of the surrounding areas.
In today’s fast-paced world, I think we’re all looking for ways to slow down and reconnect with ourselves, others and nature.
