Take your health in good hands
Members, It's hard to believe that our next Sunday outing is our Christmas Outing on December 3rd. For the walk that day, the meeting spot is the carpark opposite Reidy's pub, Newtown at 11.30pm. Members will carpool to Garrykennedy and walk to Newtown via the Lough Derg Way, 2 hour walk suitable for all. Contact Paddy 086 8562444. This will be followed by a meal which will take place at the Thatched Cottage, Ballycommon at 4.30pm followed by music and dancing to Martin Grace. Booking for the meal is to Margaret 087 2369564.
For the darker evenings, Tuesday walks will be departing from Tesco at 7.30pm with a walk along the bypass just over 9K in length. Contact Mary 087 2265926 or Martin 087 2562454 if further information required on Tuesday evening walks.
Non-members are welcome to do 3 walks before joining the club, however, we would ask that non members would contact the walk leader prior to the walk to ensure that they have the fitness level required for the walk and discuss walking gear requirement. Likewise any members unsure of hike suitability should ring walk leader before the hike.
Membership of the club is €45 which includes membership of Mountaineering Ireland and also covers insurance. Hiking boots only for all hill walks, runners suited to the winter walk of the bypass. Watch out for details of our bumper schedule of walks for the Christmas period which will see the club take in Coum, Silvermines, Moylussa, just to name a few.
