FRIDAY EVENING WALKS
Friday 14 June 2019 the group of 19 headed to Latteragh. This walk on forestry paths and woodland tracks brought them to viewing area where the group enjoyed views of Lough Derg and the rolling hills of Silvermines and Templederry. With thunder showers forecast, the weather was kind as the group enjoying a lovely dry evening. Latteragh is a location walked often by the group and each time visited, more trees have been felled, and replanted so it is interesting to see the changes. Thanks to Stapleton’s Bar Borrisoleigh for the beautiful refreshments to finish off the evening.

Friday 21 June 2019 we are heading to Upperchurch to compete The Eamon an Chnoic loop walk. Meeting in Upperchurch village near Kinnane’s Pub at 7pm. This loop explores farming country north of Upperchurch village through fields and on old laneways and minor roads with sections along forest boundaries. There are tremendous views of the Comeraghs, Knockmealdowns, Galtees, Sliabh na mBan and the Devil’s Bit. 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 Upperchurch at 7pm. Contact Brid 086 8071753.

Friday evening walks are low level walks, 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.
