5 July 2019

Friday 5 July 2019 we competed the Pilgrim Path Loop in Kilcommon. The group of 23 explored the rolling farmland, country roads, forest paths and tracks. For a number of the group it was their first time to head onto the Pilgrim Path and with great views enjoyed by all. Thanks to McCormacks of The Cross Bar Kilcommon for lovely refreshments enjoyed to finish off a lovely evening.

Friday 12 July 2019 we are heading to Grange to compete the Crag Loop. Meeting at the Community centre at 7pm. This Loop walk follows minor road, forestry tracks and woodland trails which gently ascend to a height from which some fine views open up of Kilcooly Abbey and the hills of Tipp & Kilkenny.. Hope you can come and join us. Walking is the easiest way to get moving, get active and fit with friends and to have a chat & a laugh. We are leaving Slievenamon carpark 6.30 SHARP to arrive in Grange at 7pm. Contact Tina 086 3565134.

Friday evening walks are low level walks, 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.
