Pics from Valentine's Day B Walk

We're not sure if there were roses and chocolates on the Valentine's Day B walk led by Michael Daly, but there were certainly some fine views. As well as leading a new route to Araglin Waterfall, Michael put his camera to work. Here's a small selection of the pics he took.

Valentine's Day Thursday B Walk

This Thursday, 14 February, is a Valentine's Day B walk special. Our Thursday B walks are usually rugged mountain walks and this one is no exception, but there'll be a little touch of love to it in honour of St Valentine's Day. It leaves the Park Hotel in Dungarvan at 12pm and it's a new route led by Michael Daly. Walkers are instructed to supply their own chocolates and roses.
