June News Letter


The Annual Comeragh Crossing will take place on the 4th July. We are now looking for volunteers to help on the day. Please contact one of the committee if you want to help to make this event the success it has always been. It is a fund raising event for the West Waterford Hospice and we are looking for check point Marshals and Stewards.


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

12th June at the Cunnigar. We will meet on the course at 19.00. Cost 5 Euro.

18th July 18:00.            Maries Garden.           Tickets from Committee


The Annual Holiday Abroad on September 12-19th is to Tenerife. This was the destination of the first club holiday abroad. As it's the 20th Anniversary of the Club, a return visit was decided. To find out more about the holiday and the walks planned, contact Tony Fitzgerald.
On Sun 31st May seven B walkers including 1 guest all the way from France headed for the Comeraghs and completed a circuit of Seefin from Mauma Rd finishing via Farbrega. Some described it as four seasons all in one, with hailstones and wind but mostly nice sunshine throughout. As this was his first time leading, our leader noticed after some time that he was being marked out of ten. 2 points were deducted for the Hailstones but later recovered for the Sunny Spot where we had lunch. (Isn’t that right Ger ? ). An enjoyable walk with some nice climbs and the distance covered was just over 15 Km.

C Walk Report: Clonmel to Carrick, Sunday May 31st. Leader, Ronagh Baumann
A troop of 14 C walkers sample the newly opened towpath that runs along the river Suir from Clonmel to Carrick on Suir. A bus brought the walkers from Carrick to Clonmel and after sheltering from a short squall, they set off on the 18km route.
The walkers escaped the worst of the showers and most of the walk took place in brilliant sunshine, but the grass was high at times and they had to beat it back with their sticks. The walk took five hours in total, but the walkers broke for an excellent lunch in Kilsheelan provided by James O'Donnell and his team of beautiful assistants. Many thanks to James for his generosity and hospitality.
