15 June 2018

Friday 15th June 2018, 22 walkers headed to Latteragh, and this week the weather was kind to us. We had a lovely dry night, not too hot, ideal for walking. Latteragh is a location we walk a couple of times in the year and each time we go there, more trees have been felled, so it is interesting to see the changing landscape. A walk enjoyed by all. Thanks to Stapleton’s Bar Borrisoleigh for the beautiful refreshments to finish off the night. Next Friday June 22nd we hope to head to Abbeyleix.

The 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.
