Good 5 hour workout with500m climbing and 9 k-much of it across untracked heather and peat. Damp day in Comeraghs; 17 walkers on the 1 boot expertly led by long time member and leader Ger Lynch saw little of the dramatic scenery of the plateau except a glimpse of water gushing over the top of the Mahon Falls

Still waiting for 3 boot report to come in! Micheal led a hardy bunch of walkers (8 in total) into the mist from Mahon Falls car park ! — in Mahon Bridge.

Wonderful 2 Boot walk lead by Micheál Brennan on Sunday 6th October 2019. Some new new members had their first taste of the Comeragh Mountains with a mixed walk including an adventure into the cave at Crotty’s Lake and a steep scramble up gully. 7 tired but happy walkers!

The one boot led by Helen and Matt started from the recently developed marked trail which begins in Kiltealy village, from where the group emerged onto open mountain and joined the main path up Blackstairs mountain about 3/4 way up; the summit proved to be shrouded in mist – unlike the rest of the walk which enjoyed very clear and dry conditions.

Ger’s 2 booter was a 20k + ramble over the Mount Leinster range at a pace that did not permit the taking of any photos!!

A number of new members have joined in recent weeks and all proved their fitness on Sunday’s walks !
