Sun and views for Hillwalkers

Winnie Flynn led the Mid Tipp Hillwalkers A walk last weekend.

They started in Kings Yard and from there made their way to Temple Hill, where they had lunch, then Knockaterrif Beg, Knockaterrif and back to Kings Yard, four and a half hours, great sunshine (lots of sunscrean) and spectacular views over to Galtymore and surrounding areas,

Josephine Tobin led the B walk on a circuit of Coumshingaun. Beautiful day, looking down on clouds over south coast. Hundreds of walkers out enjoying lake and circuit above.

Tina Bourke and Brid Ryan Bourke led the Ramble which headed to Durrow, where in glorious conditions walked around 12km. The group of 13 meandered through the leafy loop and had a carpet of bluebells and the scent of garlic in the air. We encountered new four legged friends, celebrated Lithuanian mothers day and finished our walk with cooling ice cream cones sitting in the green in Durrow.
