May News Letter

April proved to be a very busy time in the Club with walks taking place in many different areas. On Saturday 11th during the Dungarvan Food Festival, Peter led a large group on a walk in the Knockmealdown Mountains. The regular Sunday B & C Walks on the 12th and 19th went to the various popular spots of the Comeraghs, Mount Mellary and, Mount Stewart.
The Thursday B& C Style walks also went ahead and as always enjoyed a hot cuppa and a cake at the end.
The main event of the month was the Club's annual April Weekend away. This year, the beautiful Kerry town of Killarney was the chosen venue and by all accounts was a huge success.

Darkness into light walk.

Cunnigar Crossing. 
Supporting the Dungarvan Lions Club the Annual Cunnigar Crossing will take place on August 2nd. The departure time will be announced nearer the date as it all depends on those tides!!. After the walk, we will repair to Tig an Ceoil Pub for refreshments and collection for the Lions Club. Remember to bring along a change of foot wear as it can get very mucky.
