Saturday morning, 4am, and among some 500 people who gathered to support PIPS fund raiser walk at Navan Vistor Centre Armagh were ATG committee members Rachel, Aisling and Malachi. The 5k walk around this ancient neighbourhood was rewarded by seeing the first rays of daylight, the hope that brings and the dawn chorus rising in unison.
