Walkers defy wind and rain

“Are we all crazy or what?” was the question on many people’s lips as walkers gathered in the wind and rain on Sunday last. Crazy or not, 19 people turned up for Danny Bailey’s B walk on Slievenamuck, taking in the Dolmen and the Nature Park among other places, all the time accompanied by the sound of running water and the wind in the trees.

Thanks to Danny for finding the driest tracks on such a wet day.

On the exposed Galtees conditions were even worse for Joe Browne’s A walk from Galtee Castle. Undeterred, however, the 8 hardy individuals completed a 3.5 hour loop taking in no less than 3 fast-flowing rivers, the Blackrock, the Glounreagh and the Attychraan. Many thanks to Joe.

On Sunday next the A walkers meet with Pat Ryan at Grubb’s Monument at 10am, the B group meets with Roger Lonergan at Rossadrehid Waterworks, also at 10 and Therese Roche meets the C walkers at Bansha Woods Car Park at 11am.

The members of the club would like to express their sympathy to Rita Hickey on the death of her mother and to Alec Lee on the death of his father last week.
