Walk Report: Portlaw Woods C Walk, Sunday 19 January. Walk Leader: Norman Graham
There was a massive turnout of 20 walkers for the Sunday C walk to Portlaw Woods, a Norman Graham Classic. The fact that the walk was in the east of the county failed to deter these brave walkers, though the clear bright weather was no doubt an attraction. There is nothing quite like crunching through woods on a bright blue winter day. The walkers climbed up to the Cross, where they enjoyed stunning views of Waterford County. The walk was completed in three hours and it finished in a graveyard, as you do!
