As can be seen from the results Week 2 has now finished, and even though two teams on an equal score have pulled away slightly, the prizes are still there for the taking. Week 3 continues until Sunday next March 20th .

Mountain Fitness Walks: The Mountain Fitness walks have resumed for 2011. On the remaining Sundays of Lent the walks will start out at the Mountain Fitness Gym in Killoskehane from 9am and will follow the usual route to the Devil’s Bit mountain and back. Perhaps it is important to mention that the walk caters for all levels of fitness – so you can walk for any distance you feel you are able to. (The full walk takes 1 ½ to 2 hours max). On Easter Sunday there will be a fun element introduced with a treasure hunt organised for the children, and at the end of the walk breakfast will be laid on for the adults.
