The Firefly Summit 2017: Podiatric MSK is just around the corner – but the event promises to be a podiatry conference like no other. Aside from spending time in conference listening to the UK and Ireland’s leading podiatrists’ clinical gold, delegates will take part in adventure activities in the wilds of Ireland’s northwest. In recent weeks delegates have been telling us the adventure activity they wish to experience while in Sligo.
The sold out event will see 200 podiatrists converge on Sligo, home to Firefly Orthoses and recently listed as one of Vogue Magazine’s favourite places to holiday in 2017.
Ireland is renowned for its natural beauty with locations such as Kerry, Cork and Wicklow all noted for their scenic offerings but Sligo is growing in popularity all the time with more tourists making it their destination of choice. And Summit delegates will discover first hand, the breathtaking scenery and striking landscapes Sligo boasts.
Hilltop Irish Coffee
The most popular activity, as chosen by Summit delegates, is a hike up the historic Knocknarea. The hill stands 1,037 feet in height and is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the county with the prominent cairn of Queen Meave located at the summit. We have a special reward for those who make it to the top … an Irish coffee and some smoked salmon on brown bread. Mmmmmmmm!
The second most popular activity chosen by delegates is stand up paddling [SUPing]. Sligo has many wonderful natural resources; Lough Gill and the Garavogue River that flows from the lake through the town to the sea are just two on our doorstep. The lake and river will be the setting for our stand up paddle boarders.
