Thursday Walk: Carrigavantry Lake, August 28th

 Despite heavy clouds, it turned out to be a perfect day for walking as the John Browne Division of the Thursday walking set ventured to the Eastern half of the county for a walk by the Carrigavantry Reservoir. 13 walkers set off from Fenor carpark and the combination of warm sunshine and a fresh breeze created ideal walking conditions.

 The walk took approximately two and a half hours and the walkers strolled down laneways with bushes that were filled with blackberries. Needless to say, the walkers gorged on the plump black fruit. They stopped to let horses pass and then jumped over puddles created after the horses churned up the ground. Afterwards, the Dungarvan Baking Committee were in full force and the walkers munched tart made with forest fruits and Madeira cake, washed down with tea.

 Tuesday 7th October at 20:00 Club AGM at Park Hotel

If you’ve got a walk report or a piece of news you think the club should be aware of, please send it to
