27 Nov : Archaeological Cluster under Milk Hill , Comeraghs

After heavy mist on Saturday and gale force winds overnight, the Club walks in the  Comeraghs were blessed with excellent weather : mild and excellent visibility (this time last year we had the beginning of the extended period of lying snow!) . The easy and moderate groups stayed together for a tour of the rich archaeological remains to be found in the townland of Tooreen East under Milk Hill led by Colette who unerringly took the group to each feature in turn before a gentle ascent of Milk Hill for lunch and a gentle contour around the Glenastuckaun stream. The “moderate” group climbed higher for rewarding views over Lough Coumfea.

Mountain Meitheal

On Saturday 29th October six volunteers put in an extra work day
in Glendalough to secure the ramp leading to the zig-zag track
above the miners village. This work is part of the project in
partnership with the Wicklow Mountains National Park to repair
last year’s flood damage. The track gets 50,000 visitors every
year.
