Saturday 20 January 2018
Just to let you know that the B and C walks for Sunday 21 January are both cancelled, as we have received the sad news that Tom Fitzgerald's wife, Anne, has died. Our sympathies go to Tom and his family. Anne was known to the members of the club, as she came on several club holidays. The walks have been cancelled as a mark of respect to Tom, Anne and their family.

New Year’s Eve Walk to Glenshelane
Fifteen hardy souls decided to shake off the Christmas cobwebs and brave the elements in Glenshelane Woods. We negotiated slippery bridges and limbo-danced under a tree. At the halfway point, leader Norman Graham made the decision to turn back and we went back the way we came. Despite almost incessant rain, the mood was bright, and we all agreed that the walk was a great way to start the New Year
Sneem Weekend– May 2018
In May, the club will be heading to Sneem in Co. Kerry for our weekend away. The weekend runs from 11-13 May and we’ll be staying at the Sneem Hotel. The cost of this weekend is €149 per person, including two nights B&B and an evening meal. If you’d like to come on this weekend, contact Dave Byrne on 087 7971697, and have your money paid by the night of the club meeting on 6 February.
Mulled Wine Walk. Walk Report, Richard Dykes
There was an impressive turnout of 45 revellers for the annual Mulled Wine Walk on 17 December. After the walk along the Ardmore Cliffs, they enjoyed great cakes and mince pies made by Ronagh Baumann. Erich Baumann excelled again with his delicious mulled wine. There was also lots of hearty singing to go along with the treats. Thanks to Erich and Ronagh for their time and great work.
