APRIL NEWS LETTER
SAINT PATRICKS DAY WALK TO SLIABH na mBAN.
The Club made its annual trek up to the fabled Sliabh na mBan on Saint Patricks Day. 26 walkers reached the top of the mountain and sang " Sliabh na mBan as hailstones fell on them. When the hailstones stopped a group photo was taken. Then they made their way down and headed for Kilcash Castle where they gorged on chicken drumsticks, sausages and delicious cakes and buns. All washed down with hot coffee and tea. After the picnic they retired to the local pub for further refreshments.
