The Peaks Mountaineering Club in Clonmel has organised its Christmas party, with the walk and bus booked for Saturday, December 7.

The message is get the dancing shoes out, the glad rags aired and tickets bought.

More details are available from any of the committee or PRO Bernard Lennon on 086-2937220.

Saturday’s walk starts from Eldon’s at 10am and will be gentle and short, as these fortnightly walks are an introduction to our lovely mountains. The walks on Sunday, Nov. 17 are in the Knockmealdowns and the early walk at 10am has a different leader from the meets list. The noon walk will be led by Kevin O’Donnell, assisted by Martha Beardmore and Margo Kelly.

Sunday was a miserable day on the mountains but the brave members headed for the Galtees geared for the worst that nature threw at them. The walks were led by Kevin Bowen and Jim O’Flaherty.
