Nenagh Hillwalking Group put their best foot forward

Members, please note the next few upcoming hikes. Sunday April 15th will be our annual Spring Clean Walk, and April 29th our open day, contact Willie 087 6633577 (see separate note regarding these days).

Our Tuesday evening hikes continue on 10th April with a hike around the Silvermines hills departing Costello's garage at 7.15 contact Martin 087 2562454. Willie will also be returning to his 'Last of the Summer wine' Thursday morning walks which will commence on 5th April meeting at Tesco car park at 10.30 with a different walk every Thursday. First walk will be the Glen of Aherlow. Contact Willie 087 6633577.

Non-members are welcome to do three walks before joining the club, however, we would ask that non members would contact the walk leader prior to the walk to ensure that they have the fitness level required for the walk and discuss walking gear requirement. Likewise any members unsure of hike suitability should ring walk leader before the hike. Membership of the club is €45 which includes membership of Mountaineering Ireland and also covers insurance. Hiking boots only for all hill walks.

Spring Clean Walk and Open Day
April is Spring clean month across the Irish Hills and Countryside. Aonach ar Siul annual spring clean walk is on Sunday 15th April “Leaving nothing but our footsteps”. We will walk the delightful “Sli Eala” along by the Nenagh river on a three hour ramble from Annaghbeg bridge to Nenagh town.
