Two walks Last Weekend

Two walks Last Weekend

There were two walks last weekend – Keith Stanley led an intermediate walk to the Knockalough Loop in Upperchurch, which provided fantastic views over the local countryside while Christy Lupton led five long walkers on a strenuous climb of Carrauntohill, with Kyle Shanahan and Pat McDermott making their first climb. Next weekend, Brian Redmond leads the short walkers to Glinsk Castle in the Sliabh Blooms, while Mick Fogarty will lead the long walkers to Coumshingaun in the Comeraghs. The Tuesday walks continue – meet in Damer Court carpark at 7pm every week. For anyone considering taking up hill walking, these walks are a great way to start. Remember, new members must do 2-3 short walks before going on an intermediate or long walk. More photos have been uploaded on our Facebook page.
