Sunday, 1 Mar 2020 Bridget Browne led A walk with group of 8 walkers leaving a local farmyard near Coolagarranroe and followed a long track before descending to the Burncourt river. Lovely views of snow-capped Galty Beag and O’Loughlin’s Castle. Weather chargeable with sunshine, hailstones spindrift and snow. After crossing the river they made their way up towards the 1972 plane crash site, topped out and found shelter among the peat gags and had lunch. Next stop Galty Beag in very windy conditions and then descended to the Black Road with sunshine coming and going. Lastly ascended Knockeenatong and from there made the short descent to cars.

Denise Laffan led the C Walk with group of 6 walkers. Starting at Carey’s Castle with a lovely walk through the forestry, met a nice gentleman and his dog called Bailey who had loads of energy. They walked onto the hills down to the Glenary area in beautiful sunshine. Afterwards they crossed two rivers heading south west onto the hills and back over through the forestry.

This coming Sunday (Mar 8) A and B walks leave from opposite the fire station in Cashel at 10am.
