Walk Report: Thursday C Walk 14 February. Leader, Norma O’Meara



We hillwalkers are a surprisingly romantic lot, and this was proven when Norma O’Meara, leader of this Thursday C walk, produced Love Hearts sweets for us to sample at the traditional post-walk tea. Before that, she led a group of approximately 20 walkers along a canal bank which ended at a place called Two-Mile Bridge. There we found… a bridge! She then led us back to the start point, where we enjoyed a romantic feast served on a table decorated with a tablecloth festooned with hearts. There was a history lesson too, centred on a nearby castle, but this reporter was dossing at the back and missed it.



Venue for 2019 Christmas Party



We know it’s way too early, or too late depending on your viewpoint, but there has been considerable debate about where to go for this year’s Christmas party. Ronagh Baumann has provisionally booked the upstairs room in Merries, where we will have more room. But some members fancy some jigging and jiving, so the tennis club has been suggested. We’ve had many great parties there, but to make this year’s one a success, people will need to be willing to come forward and organise it.



Eibhlin Power has thrown a third suggestion into the mix, the Conservatory at the Park Hotel. It would be possible to have a meal there in privacy and Eibhlin will enquire as to whether we can then join the hotel’s official party nights for a dance. Please let the committee know which venue tempts you. While it’s not urgent, bookings do fill up, so it would be good to hear from you about it in the next few weeks.



Next Club Meeting: The next club meeting will take place on Tuesday 2 April at the Tudor House at 8pm.



If you have any news you think you’d like the club to hear about, please contact PRO Derbhile Graham, derbhile.graham@gmail.com.
