Roscrea - news extra

Last Thursday saw the group have a great walk up by the silver river at Cadamstown, where the rain threatened to spoil this wonderful walk but just as soon as it appeared it vanished just as quick leaving the group to do what they do best and that is to walk, talk and enjoy the beautiful Irish countryside.

Last Thursday saw the group have a great walk up by the silver river at Cadamstown, where the rain threatened to spoil this wonderful walk but just as soon as it appeared it vanished just as quick leaving the group to do what they do best and that is to walk, talk and enjoy the beautiful Irish countryside.

This week’s walk will be around the grounds of Kinnity castle being led by local man Declan Rambsbottom and with the evenings getting shorter this will be the second last walk of the summer.

It’s not too late to join these very social walks and still get the chance to climb Slieve Blooms highest mountain Ard Erin on Saturday September the 21st, as with all our walks everyone is welcome young and old.

For more information you can log onto www.walkingireland.ie. They hope to see you there.

The tree, created by Jane Bulfin in Thurles Library, is a work of art in itself.

For anyone interested in registering, time is running out so get to the library as soon as you can to register.

Every participant will receive a Medal, sponsored by Bernie’s Supervalu and a certificate to mark their participation in the event.
