Sunday 12th May 2019 a group of eight led by Matt Joy began their A walk from the upper car park at Glencush and proceeded up Cush in glorious sunshine. From there they dropped into the col in anticipation of the long slog up Galtybeg and lunch. Splendid views throughout the day helped take the mind from the task at hand. Along the way we met with several club members. See photo. After lunch they headed for Galtymore and from there they.descended by the northern slopes to lake Diheen and its moraine in all its splendour from there they made their way back to the cars via the Galty stile and track system. A great day was had by all.
Glorious weather greeted the 24 participants on C-walk led by John G O’Dwywr to the Rhododendron Country of the Knockmealdown Mountains. The group followed the old road from Clogheen up to Baylough with lunch taken by the lakeside. Then, the return was through the woodland paths of Loughglenbridge with plenty of blooming rhododendrons along the way. Everyone was then back in Cashel in time to watch Tipp’s great victory over Cork.
This coming Sun (May 19) A and B walks leave from opposite the fire station in Cashel at 11am. All welcome. Wear outdoor clothing and suitable footwear and bring a rain jacket and a packed lunch.

Friday evening walks are low level walks, from May to September of 2 – 3 hrs duration, 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.
Our first outing this year is a walk and guided talk around the walls of Fethard. Hope you can come and join us. Walking is the easiest way to get moving, get active and fit with friends and to have a chat & a laugh. We are leaving Slievenamon carpark 6.30 SHARP to arrive at Fethard (parking opposite AIB) at 7pm approx – contact Brid
