Roscrea Ramblers

Last Sunday, there was only one walk – an intermediate walk to the Knockalough Loop in Upperchurch. This was a 3hr 8 km walk led by Keith Stanley across open fields and forest track with plenty of climbs. The weather held up with beautiful scenery. Next Sunday there’s only one walk – a short walk to the Sliabh Blooms led by Alex Crawford – ideal for anyone considering joining the Ramblers. Members are reminded that membership is now overdue – if you haven’t renewed your membership, you’re no longer insured so pay today! The full schedule of walks for the next three months is now up on our website ( Anyone thinking of trying out walks with the Ramblers can join us for two walks without paying membership – just to see if you like it.

Thursday Night Walking

As usual there was no walk last Thursday night and this week’s walk will be postponed to the next day, Friday the 28th of February. We’re sorry for any inconvenience and do hope that you can make it. This walk will be starting at Dromakeenan School and will take in Orange hill/Golden Grove. Conditions will be mucky under foot after the recent wet spell, so proper footwear is essential. As with all our walks they are free and open to all, young and old. Meeting as normal at Mulrooneys Gala on the old Dublin Rd at 7pm. For those of you looking for a more energetic form of exercise you could try the sport of indoor rock climbing which is a great way of getting fit and toned while having fun at the same time, all the necessary climbing equipment is provided, just wear trainers and loose clothing. Please contact the number below for more details.
