Walk report

SUNDAY AUGUST 7th.                              FEARBREAGA WALK.
20 enthusiastic walkers turned up, including 3 visitors (most welcome). We started from the Mauma road and headed for Carrigaline Mast. Of course this was a huge surprise to our visitors. "What on earth is that".
Photos at the standing stone were followed by lunch in the shelter of the stone circle sheltering us from the wind. But the sun shone and the views were terrific.
It takes time to get 20 bodies across wire fencing and gullies, but the “cute" ones went first and took the opportunity to lie in the long grass soaking up the sunshine..... Obviously I had total control over the group!!!
The Waterford v Kilkenny Hurling match was on the radio and as we debooted, we HAD to go to the Tudor Bar in Dungarvan to console ourselves. What's new!!!
The GAA and the DHWC are very similar-we will do it all again next week folks-same time, same venue.
Walk leader and report by Ann Mangan.

Thanks to walk leaders and those that sent in reports. Keep 'em coming.


The Club will hold its annual AGM in the Park Hotel, Dungarvan on the 4th October at 8pm. We hope to see as many of our members as possible at the meeting.
Refreshments provided.

The annual Christmas party will be in the Dungarvan Tennis Club on Saturday the 17th December. More information about it in the coming months. But save the date! This is a great fun filled night in the beautiful tennis club. So hope to see you there.


Our annual Xmas walk is on Sunday 11th December. More details later.

If you have any walk reports, news or adverts please forward them on to Marie by email at
