Friday evening walks.
29th June 2018, in beautiful evening sunshine 26 walkers headed to Grange to complete the Crag Loop.
Trailhead starts at Grange village near Gortnahoe. The group explored the lower slopes and then completed the longer circular route. On reaching Wellington Tower a few people climbed the steel stairway at the Tower to get great views of the countryside and of Kilcooley Abbey. The group finished off a most enjoyable evening with delicious refreshments prepared by Josephine in Hogan’s Pub Grange. Thanks everyone for making it a lovely evening enjoying the great weather.
Next Friday July 6th 2018 we are heading to Silvermines. Very Important to wear walking boots and bring walking poles on this walk.
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.
