A listing of the various groups in U3A Armagh

Wine Group – May meeting.

The May meeting will be at Chapter V restaurant in Moy on Thursday 17th at 7.30pm. There will be a four course meal and accompanying wines. Price £50 per person excluding tip and tea/coffee. There is plenty of room so I hope for a good turnout probably including partners, friends etc. if you wish.

If you would like to attend I can collect money on Wednesday at the U3A AGM or evening meeting otherwise let me know you wish to come and send Peter a cheque (address below). Cheques will not be deposited until 17th May.

8 Old Scarva Road, Tandragee, BT62 2ED.

New Group – Board Games

Starting at 10.30 am on Wednesday 25th April, this new group will encompass the former backgammon group and expand to cover whatever board games or card games you wish to play. Come along for tea, coffee, a chat, and bring along your own game. For further details contact Emmett Lynch on 37525868.

Walking Group – Cave Hill

On Thursday, 19th April Declan will lead our next walk up Cave Hill in Belfast. Very good paths and views when we get to the top. There is a good choice of refreshments in Belfast Castle at the finish of our walk.

Walking Group – April walks

Our next walk will be held this coming Thursday, April 5th, and will be led by Deirdre in Rossmore Forest Park outside Monaghan. Deirdre is a mine of information on the history of Rossmore so we can expect a good workout for our legs and our minds.

Our other walk, on Thursday, 19th April will be over Cavehill, Belfast and will be led by Declan Moane. Declan usually unearths some interesting facts about his walks. I will remind you about the Cavehill walk nearer to the time.

Some of you may have walks that you would be interested in leading. Walk dates up to our summer break are May 3rd,17th and 31st, June 14th and 28th.

Walking Group – Kilbroney Park

Our walk next Thursday 22nd March will be in Kilbroney Forest Park and will last about 3 /3.5 hrs. We had hoped to have a hill walk but the conditions underfoot at present are very poor. We hope for an improvement in the weather but if there is none we will just have to get our boots muddy. If any of you are interested in leading a walk we would like to hear from you.

Walking Group – Castlewellan Forest Park

Weather permitting, our next walk will be this coming Thursday, March 8th. Carol will lead our walk in Castlewellan Forest Park. Recently, the weather has been, to say the least, changeable so an e-mail will be sent on Wednesday to either confirm or cancel our walk.
