Eoin Wolahan led 11 B walkers in a lovely loop walk which started at the “old Ballydavid Hostel ” area near Rossadrehid. Heading up to the “mast point” taking in wonderful views of Sturrakeen and other surrounding areas. They walked through forestry paths in glorious sunshine passing by some rivers and steams. This was a most enjoyable walk and was especially suited for windy conditions as they had good cover throughout.
Tina Bourke and 5 Ramblers enjoyed a great walk on the Devils Bit. They headed up from Barnane side, past the tower and up to the cross. The day was so nice it was unanimous decision to head down and go the long way round and come back to the trig point via Borrisofarney by climbing up the chimney. From the highest point the group happily made their way back down to the cars. Some of the group enjoyed lovely refreshments at Mulrooneys Service Station Templemore. Thanks to the staff for treating them so well.
