The Club’s annual Christmas walks and party took place over the weekend of 1/2 December. 30 members undertook the challenge of climbing Lugnaquilla, Leinster’s highest mountain from the Glen of Imaal side. Led by Mick Wall with Mick Kielthy providing encouragement from the rear the group made the summit in less than ideal conditions – mist on the way up and a heavy rain shower just at lunchtime!
Return was by the same route to Fenton’s Pub for well deserved refreshments. Later that evening, the traditional club festive meal was held in Murphy’s Hotel, Tinahely.
Sunday’s “recovery” walk was on the Tinahely Railway Path and Tomnafinnogue Wood
