June News Letter


                                    The weather was mixed for the weekend but a great time was had by all. The C walk on Saturday had a premature ending due to adverse weather, but all was not lost as an earlier than planned visit to the bar took place.  The B walk pushed on through the bad rain to try and get to the top of Mweelray and after a brief stop for lunch just before the ridge, the rain stopped and visability improved so when we got to the top we had a great view of White strand and the Islands. Rain soon recommenced on the way down but our spirits were not dampened with another successful walk under our belts. Thanks to Peter for organising another great weekend away.
