A group of 12 A walkers completed a circuit of the Punchbowl led by Denise Laffan, on reaching the trig point of Lachtnafrankee, veered south west to a few unnamed hills, where views of Galtees, The Comeraghs & the Knockmealdowns could be seen. Following lunch at a section of the Glenary River in beautiful sunshine, headed north where they came across other walking companions from the Club, great chat was had for a few minutes. On saying “Au Revoir” to our fellow walkers, continued up Longhill and dropped down to a coll and veered back down through the forestry.

John G O’Dwyer led the group of 12 C walkers around Glenary and Holy year cross. In beautiful blue skies and sunshine they enjoyed the walk taken in views of Clonmel and the surrounding hills.

There is no scheduled walk from Cashel next Sunday as Mid Tipp Hillwalkers will be supporting the Kerry Challenge This year’s Challenge is from Fri, April 5 to Sun, April 7, and is based in the 4-star, Rose Hotel, Tralee.

With a wide selection of walks for all levels of ability but the big attraction has always been the chance to meet old and new friends while raising money for the Charity Challenge.
