Despite the country encountering all the elements that climate change can throw at it, the hardy members of Blarney Walking Group continued walking throughout the non event that was Spring of 2018. However, hurricane Emma and the snows of early March certainly had their effect as government warnings and health and safety notices had to be obeyed. While ground conditions remain challenging, we hope that as Summer dawns, the rain God will turn off the tap and gift all those who enjoy the great outdoors and those who make their living from the land a welcome ray of sunshine!
Scottish Highlands. This year saw another successful trip to Scotland organised by John McLaughlin. The group scaled the dizzy heights of Stob Ban on the Mamores and celebrated La Le Padraig, Scottish style, over the bank holiday week end. Congratulations to John and all concerned.
Dingle. We made a return visit to the Dingle walking festival in February for a most enjoyable weekend. All levels of walks were catered for and the weather held up for Saturdays walk
Summer evening walks. Over the past few Summers these fortnightly, Wednesday evening walks have proved very popular. Once again a programme of interesting, local walks has been planned commencing on Wednesday, May 9th. All walks start at 7.30pm
Darkness into Light. This wonderful event takes place on Saturday, May 12th. Blarney Walking Group have traditionally joined with members of the local and wider community to walk in solidarity with this cause. No doubt the early hours of May 12th will see them rise and shine once again to lend their support.
Walks schedule. The summer schedule of walks is now available on the website. Happy walking to all.
