Walk report on Seven Sisters Walk lead by Monica Corcoran.

This was a very interesting walk lead by experienced walk leader Monica Corcoran. Despite the inclement weather a hardy group of seven club members completed the walk. Well done to everyone who braved the elements and stayed the course. After togging out in our wet gear we walked from the upper car park at Mahon Falls following a course set by our leader. Along the way we met some walkers from the Kilmacthomas club, other than that we had the mountain to ourselves. Lunch was at the Seven Sister lakes and coffee never tasted so well. Our return route took us by Ned Curran’s cottage, a beautiful spot in the Comeragh’s that never fails to invoke the imagination on life in bygone days.
Happy to say we all returned to our cars wet and weary but in good spirits after a good walk and looking forward to a hot shower and a hot toddy.

Post AGM Events
We are looking for B & C walk leaders to do night walks of no more than 3 hours duration on familiar ground in November and December.  Guidance and assistance on the night can be arranged.  Contact the new walk coordinators.

Night walk
Thursday 22nd October. Deelish Mountain. Meeting at TSB car park at 19:30. Torch essential.

Thanks for everyone’s support over the last year and let’s hope for another successful walking year ahead.
