GREAT NEWS – BACK ON THE HILLS – 12 JULY 2020

Walks will be for Members Only for the coming weeks.

Josephine had 10 out on A walk, starting in upper Glengarra wood and ascended S.E shoulder to O’ Loughlins Castle where lunch awaited them! Galtybeg was their next objective after which they headed cross country to the “Monument” before heading for the Burncourt river crossing and back to the forestry tracks leading them to a firebreak directly back to their cars. All walkers were so happy to be back.

Report from Dan – 15 out on the B walk. It was absolutely great to arrive in Cashel and see the faces of our friends after so long, even if we could not exchange the usual hugs and handshakes due to social distancing. As we walked, it was great also to catch up and find we had lots to talk about other than the virus. We all travelled separately to the start poiint in Boulakennedy and had a lovely walk on the southern slopes of the Galtees on a beautiful day. Lunch on the hills tasted great again after so long. It was a real joy to be out, and social distancing is so easy to maintain in the wide open spaces of the hillsides. The photo of the group with the Knockmealdown mountains in the background.

The Sunday Ramble headed to Templederry and had 13 people out completing the circuit of Cooneen Hill. Entering by the glen of the Nenagh river near Longjohnshill and headed up to Poul an Ass and the sound only of the waterfall. Climbing up the country road to the forest track entrance. The group walked along the trail and back to their cars. They enjoyed the many views over the rolling hills of Templederry.
