19 May 2019

Sunday 19th May 2019 Denise Laffan led the 9 enthusiastic A walkers up Knockastakeen, from there headed to Lake Borheen or The Teardrop Lake as it’s commonly known, lunch was had at the lake where a cool breeze blew, the group then headed up Cush and back down through the forestry.

Bridget Browne and the B walkers set out from Clydagh Bridge to the ice road and headed for Lough Curra. They climbed the ramp and were greeted by wonderful views in all directions. A short walk led to Galtee Mor where they had lunch, then headed to Galtee Beag, then on to Cush and back to our cars.

Dan Condren led the Navigation practice on the Comeraghs beginning at The Punchbowl and his chosen points were dispersed around Long Hill, Glenary and taking the scenic route back via Lachtnafrankee. Enjoyable and informative.

This coming Sun (May 26) A and C 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. Walking is a great way to get fit as well as being a great way to meet new friends and see new places. Give it a go as new walkers are welcome to come along, so, for a healthy, sociable and enjoyable activity, feel free to join us in Cashel at 11am. Just bring boots, suitable clothes and a packed lunch. A change of clothes and particularly footwear for after the walk is also strongly advised.

Friday evening walks are low level walks, starting 24th May 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.

Our first outing this Friday 24th 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
