Friday evening walks.
Friday 2 Aug 2019 John G O’Dwyer led the Friday evening walk on the leafy Loop in Durrow which was enjoyed by 37 participants. Many thanks to Susan Lawlor for the lovely historic insights and visit to Knockatrina House and Durrrow Castle Gardens.
Great evening enjoyed by the group and refreshments enjoyed by 28 in Dec’s Bar Durrow. Thanks everyone for coming out and making it an enjoyable evening. With only 4 walks left this summer, come out and join us.
Next Friday Aug 9 we are heading to Grange to compete the Crag Loop. Meeting at the Community centre at 7pm. This Loop walk follows minor road, forestry tracks and woodland trails from which some fine views open up of Kilcooly Abbey and the hills of Tipp & Kilkenny.. 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 in Grange at 7pm. Contact Michael Walsh 087 2755445.
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.
