Update on Sligo Weekend

The club expects to have a magnificent weekend in Sligo on 17 and 18 May. We’ll be staying at the Sligo Southern Hotel, where we’ll no doubt enjoy great food and hospitality. But above all, we’ll be enjoying some varied and interesting walks, thanks to the hard work of Dave Byrne and his recce team, who have checked out the walks for us.

The Saturday B walk is expected to be on the mighty Ben Bulben, clocking in at 15.5km. The C walk is expected to be to Knocknaree Mountain and the grave of the legendary Queen Maeve. Also, the car pool fee is €30 for those who are sharing the driving.

Walk Report: Anne Valley Sunday C Walk, 31 March

A tidy handful of walkers ventured east to try out the extended Anne Valley walk under the leadership of Elizabeth Twohig. Nine walkers in all sampled the new route, which takes you along the Anne River. The walkers had a chance to see lots of wildlife, and the walkers were delighted to come upon a swan’s nest.

Unfortunately, we missed a chance to see an egret that had been popping up in recent days, but we were content to chat and explore the route, which was new to some of the walkers. The walk lasted just under three hours and the cloud cover never quite lifted, though it stayed dry.
