    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.


CLIMBING WALL

The climbing wall is now closed. Outdoor climbing will continue Thursday evenings usually in the Gap of Dunloe area. In the event of rain, the climbing wall may be open. **NB: Open to Members & MCI Insured only (MCI card must also be presented) **


EVENING WALKS

Our Summer Evening Walks will commence in April
