Carol and Ita will lead our walk next Thursday, May 31st. The walk will begin at Leitrim Lodge car park and proceed over Tievedockarragh and Pierces Castle all on good paths and good dry slopes over the mountains. The walk should last about 3.5 hours and boots and walking poles are recommended.
Mark, Rowena Bailey and Deirdre will lead a bluebell walk in Lumford Glen and Knockmany forest next Thursday (17th). We hope the bluebells will still be at their best. We plan to keep within the forest park for the walk and cut out the long walk along the road to the far side of the Forest. Afterwards we hope to stop at Souter’s cafe for some coffee and scones.
Meet as usual 9.30 am at the palace car park. Small picnic for the top of the hill. Time about 2 1/2 hours walking.

For further details contact Emmett Lynch on 37525868.
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.
