20 July 2018

Friday 20th July 2018 the Friday evening walk travelled to the Devils Bit. In a light mist 29 walkers started from the Car Park and headed up to the Tower. Passing by the cross and statue and making their way up the heather path to the Trig point. With no views from the summit the group headed back and then up the very steep track passing by once again the cross. They returned along the track and down Lovers Lane before heading along the track to the Tower and back to the cars. The mist had gone and views returned as the group left the carpark. Delicious refreshments were enjoyed by 24 of the group in Margaret and Michael Finns’s pub in Templemore.

Next Friday July 27th 2018 we are heading to Upperchurch to complete Eamon an Chnoic loop walk. Meeting Upperchurch at 7pm.

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.

If anybody is planning a walk during the summer and would be willing to invite club members, please let Dan know and he can circulate details.
