Dungarvan Hillwalking Club organises an international holiday every year and this year it was to Austria, from 1-8 September. As this poster writes, the walkers are homeward bound after what looks to have been a very successful holiday. Valentine Kenneally and Ronagh Baumann kept us all up to date on Facebook, and here's a flavour of the holiday, as seen through their eyes.

Barbecue Fundraiser Attracts Large Crowd
Approximately 35 people gathered at the home of Colm and Linda Humphreys for the annual club barbecue on 28 July last. The barbecue was our third fundraiser of the month for our three charities, Dungarvan Lions Club, West Waterford Hospice and South-East Mountain Rescue. This reporter has heard very little about what occurred, so is concluding that what goes on tour, stays on tour. But warm thanks definitely go to Colm and Linda for hosting, and for all those who helped them to make it a great night by supplying food, barbecues and garden furniture.
Walk Report: Woodstown Thursday C Walk, 16 August. Leader, Neil Fitzgerald.
Our Thursday walkers ventured east for this Thursday walk, to Woodstown, near Dunmore East. 12 walkers, led by Neil Fitzgerald, enjoyed a two-hour walk along Woodstown Beach and scrambled along rocks to reach Creadon Beach. The scramble was fairly tough, and the walkers kept being reassured that the next beach was around the corner, but this corner proved to be possibly the largest corner in Ireland. Still, they arrived at Creadon Beach in one piece and refreshed themselves with a picnic. Spirits were high, despite a few spits of rain. They then made their way along leafy laneways, back to the Saratoga Pub, where eight of the walkers enjoyed an excellent meal.
