Beautiful Saltees!!!

Hi all, The club had a fabulous weekend in Kilmore Quay before breaking up for the summer. Thanks to all who helped out especially Sylvia, Eugene and Philip. It was great to have the kids along for the trip to the Saltees! See you all next year!!!

Sunrise on Lugnaquilla!

On Saturday morning while ye were all sleeping a few members were lucky enough to experience a breathtaking sunrise from the top of Lugnaquilla! Perfect conditions and the peace and quiet of the early morning ensured the walk up through Fraughan Rock Glen turned out to be a great success!

Beach Walk at Kilmore

Hi All,

            Just to remind you all that the end of season beach walk at Kilmore is coming up soon, so I decided to add a few photo’s of what’s to be seen.

Can all who intend going, will you contact Sylvia to make your bookings A.S.A.P.

Skye trip – Wexford/Tullow – June 2010

Cuillin Traverse

Wexford / Tullow trip June 2010

A successful traverse of the Black Cuillin Ridge in Skye was completed by Micheál and Colette supported by a superb team of ‘sherpas’, Ann, Pauline, Michael and David. Aonach Eagach, in Glencoe, done in both directions was a good warm up en route travelling North. Numerous recci walks were done on the Black Cuillin Ridge and the group climbed the Inaccessible Pinnacle, some twice! Day 2 of ridge attempt was poor weather, making the traverse a bigger challenge.
