1000K4J Fast & Furious

My wonderful wife Jacqui lost her life to cancer in January 2015. I want to help raise as much money as possible to support the fight against this awful disease. 

To date, I have undertaken three long distance walks (all over 1000 kilometres) - the Ulster Way in 2015, the Camino Del Norte in 2016 and the Ireland Way in 2018. I have also written three books detailing the physical and emotional journey involved on each walk.

Please make a donation here (or support CRUK by buying one of my books - see links below) and encourage your friends to do likewise. I am as committed as ever to helping Cancer Research UK fight cancer and, with your support, we will all help them with their aim of finally defeating cancer.

Thank you,


Further Background and Links

The stories behind my Ulster Way and Camino walks have been captured in my books 'The Edge: Walking the Ulster Way with My Angels & Demons' and 'The Man with the Camino Tattoo' respectively. Both books are available from Shanway Press (cut and paste links below into your browser) and all proceeds from my book sales are also donated to Cancer Research UK.

Both books are also available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format. Search for 'Dermot Breen' in Books

My third book, ‘Exiles: A journey through Ireland from Beara to Ballycastle’, can be purchased on Amazon in either paperback or Kindle format.
