Thanks to Frank Balfe , the club’s first walk of the season , took in a circuit of Keadeen Mountain and Carrig in West Wicklow – new territory for the group ! Frank’s extensive knowledge of the history and archaeology of the area (largest mountain ring fort, hill top neolithic burial chambers, Dwyer-McAllister cottage) plus views over to Lugnaquilla and west to the Slieve Blooms added to the enjoyment of a great day out on the hills ; and the fantastic weather was an added bonus.

If interested in joining the club , watch out for details of the Introductory Night on Tuesday 17th in Whitford House Hotel, Wexford

Marvellous Weather for Seefin

Sunday’s walk in the Comeraghs was blessed with balmy weather and great visibility ; the route was from Dalligan Bridge up to Seefin passing a number of archaeological features on the way including the incongruously painted standing stone at the Barnamaddra Gap. The welcome lunch break was enjoyed in the shelter of the hut atop Seefin and return was via the internationally important archaeological site that is the Araglin Valley.
