In a brand new series, former President Mary McAleese brings a fascinating and diverse selection of people from All Walks of Life on spiritual journeys along some of Ireland's most stunning and ancient pilgrim trails. Tapping into her own sense that Irish spirituality is uniquely rooted in our landscape, the former President talks to her walking companions about how life has shaped their values and beliefs (or lack of them), and how, in turn, those values have shaped their lives.

The series begins on Friday 17th January with Mary joined by Galway hurler, Joe Canning. Together they climb the stunning Mám Éan pass in Connemara. 

All Walks of Life, Friday nights at 8.30pm on RTÉ One.
