    Car Pooling
    As car parking is proving problematic in some of the areas we visit, we suggest that walk leaders locate a suitable car parking area in the general area of the walk, and that participants then pool cars to drive to the actual start of the walk. Your co-operation with walk leaders in this regard would be greatly appreciated.


The Calendar

The Killarney cinema is no longer the mmeeting place for walks. An Email / Whats App message will be sent to memberson the Friday preceeding a walk giving the GR of the meeting place and the walk leader's phone number.The Club Facebook page will also be updated.


Climbing Wall

The climbing wall is now closed. Outdoor climbing will continue on Thursday evenings usually in the Gap of Dunloe area. In the event of rain the climbing wall may be open.

NB: Open to members & MI insured only. MI card must be presented.


Evening Walks (Members Only)

We will be introducing evening walks for the Summer months. They will commence on Monday 17th of April and every other Monday thereafter.

There is no calendar for these walks.


Connemara

This is a weekend trip to climb on the Twelve Bens and the Maamturks. We will stay in Clifden. There is good accommodation from campsites to hotels in the town.

If you are interested contact Eamonn asap.


The Reeks Walk

As this is a long strenuous climb we are confining it to mambers only.
