Willie Fahey led the A walk in the Galtees with 12 members completing a loop walk with Fearbrega as the highest point. Streams turned into rivers and waterfalls sprang from the hills after the heavy rain on Saturday night. Nice and cosy in their wet gear all enjoyed the day. Then it was home and feet up to enjoy the All Ireland Hurling Final.

Bridget Browne led B group with 15 walkers setting out from Clydagh Bridge car park in blustery conditions and squally showers. Wind increased as they headed up the track for Cush so much so that three walkers opted to remain low with Winnie Flynn while the rest continued up Cush. Even they couldn’t continue in the high winds and skirted around to the left of the summit. They dropped down the other side and headed for Bohreen Lough where they all had lunch. Their return route took them back via the base of Cush and the heavens opened as they descended the track to the cars. An invigorating return to walking for the B walkers!

Tina Bourke led group of 15 on the Ramble. Parking at the Coillte car park in the Scaragh Wood located just outside Cahir. This newly developed Coillte trail consists of three routes from Green 3.8km, Blue 4.8km considered moderate to the Red Trail 6.2km considered strenuous which the Ramblers completed. The group had views over Cahir as the day cleared up. Scaragh Wood walk is a wonderful amenity which the Ramblers enjoyed exploring.

Next Sun 20 Dec 2020 an A Walk will leave Cashel at 9.30 am and a C Walk will leave Cashel at 10 am, if you are interested in going on either of these walks as they will be kept to a maximum of 15 people for the coming weeks, please let Denise know at 087 9253049 by Thurs 17 Dec.
