Superb October weather for Comeragh walks

Blue skies and sunshine were the order of the day in the Comeraghs with a hint of valley fog below in Carrick on Suir.

The Moderate walk began near Rathgormack, climbed to the Boolas and around the top of the coum. The route continued through the top of CoumLara and the descent was near the stream at the back of the Scillogues. An easy traverse took the group out through the Gap and down to the cars.

Big Turn Out for Introductory Walk

Over 40 walkers took part in the annual introductory walk on Sunday 5th Oct on the slopes of Mt. Leinster. As usual an early pause was made at the former Shannon residence where Mr. Andrew Lloyd related the bombing of the farmhouse on 2 January 1941 and his discovery of the Knockroe Ringstone. Lunch was had on Cloroge More , after which the group tackled the pull up to Stoney Top. The more adventurous continued on to Mount Leinster summit ! Many thanks to all the leaders who turned out and to MC for the day , John A
