25 May 2018

25 May 2018, Friday evening walks started back with 21 walkers enjoying the beautiful sunny evening in Bishopwood Dundrum. Lovely to see some new walkers and great to catch up with our regular people. Great chat and laughter echoed through the woods and Flan Quigney delighted the group with his verses of ” The donkeys dead, so solider on”. The evening finished with tasty refreshments back in Ryan Simons bar Clonoulty. Thanks to everyone for an enjoyable evening.

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.
