Mickey and Ryan join a long list of well known sports stars, mountaineers and local television presenters who are all supporting National Trails Day this year.

"These events are about showing just how easy it is to get outdoors and use our local trails and of course how beneficial this can be to healthy living. It’s great to support an initiative which is really encouraging local people of all ages and abilities to get out and active – not just footballers.” Ryan McMenamin.
