Galtee walking club - New Year

It’s the time of year when people make resolutions to improve their fitness and become more active and what better way than by joining a local walking club.

It’s the time of year when people make resolutions to improve their fitness and become more active and what better way than by joining a local walking club.

Becoming a member of the Galtee club costs a fraction of the price of gym membership and has the added advantage of getting you out in the fresh air and beautiful nature. Two clubs were out to experience that nature on Sunday. Thanks to Thomas O’Neill for a combined A and B outing where the 12 walkers stayed off the high ground to avoid the strong winds and instead completed a forest track loop on the eastern Galtees. Thanks too to Pat Kinane, leading his first C walk with the club. Pat took the 20 strong group on a 2hr loop around by Rock an Thorabh with a 40min extension west of the road for those who wanted a little bit more. On Sunday next A walkers meet at Galtee Castle car park at 10am with Joe Browne and Danny Bailey’s B walk meets at Rock an Thorabh car park for a trip to the Dolmen, also at 10am.
