Friday 10th August 2018 had a great turnout of 25 for the walk around the Kilcommon Pilgrim Loop in ideal weather conditions for rambling. Later, the fare in Kinnanes was of the usual high standard and the group were even treated to an impromptu sing-song. Afterwards, everybody was already looking forward to next Friday’s walk of the Grange Loop under the leadership of Michael Walsh.
We have only 3 walks left this summer, so come out and join us.
Next Friday August 17th 2018 we are heading to Crag Loop, Grange. Meeting Slievenamon road carpark 620pm leaving 630pm sharp or Grange Village around 7pm.
The Friday Evening Walks are low level walks, from May to September of 2 – 3 hrsduration, mostly on forest track. If you want to get out and about in the countryside, meet new people, and make new friends, just come along. We explore paths and trails off the beaten track and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday. We offer an easy introduction to off-road walking for anybody considering taking it up.
All we ask is that you come prepared with sturdy footwear, rain jacket, drink and snack. Everyone welcome, old friends and plenty of room for newcomers. The walks are very sociable and usually we end our Friday evening walk by heading for a cup of tea and sandwich.
We meet every Friday evening at Slievenamon Road car park in Thurles at 6.20pm and leave at 6.30pm sharp.
Walks are organised by Carmel Needham, Tina Bourke and Brid Ryan Bourke.
If anybody is planning a walk during the summer and would be willing to invite club members, please let Dan know and he can circulate details.
