Wonderful Walk Photos

Changing skies were a feature of the Thursday C walk on 12 September last, and they were captured by Eibhlin Power. It was to Ballinard and it was led by John Power.

And here's a pic from Michael Daly's Sunday B walk to Knockshanahullion, taken by the man himself.

A Truly Splendid Cunnigar Crossing

What a time we had at the Cunnigar Crossing this year. What a turnout. And what a whopping amount raised. On Sunday 1 September 2019, more than 600 walkers turned out for the Cunnigar Crossing from Dungarvan to Ring. 

The walkers waded across the Cunnigar at low tide and then headed along Baile na nGall beach to the other side, where buses carried them back to Dungarvan. With the Féile na Maicréal festival in full swing, there was plenty of buzz for the walkers to enjoy, and we're delighted the festival organisers included us in their programme. 

Best of all, the bucket collection en route yielded a whopping €2,900. This will go to our three charities: Dungarvan Lions Club, West Waterford Hospice and South East Mountain Rescue. Heartfelt thanks to all who donated. It means a lot. 

Thanks also go to Peter Mangan, chief organiser of the walk, to John Browne, master of the tides, and to all the club members who helped ensure that the walk ran smoothly. Thanks for the bus transfers home, and thanks most of all to the huge crowd who came. It couldn't happen without you. 

Here are six fine photos that capture the spirit of the event. The first three are from Ann Mangan. 

And the second set of three photos are from Marcus O'Halloran.
