 Alternative Walks

Walks starting later will occur on similar dates to the listed walks. As yet a calendar will not be formulated. Info on these walks will appear on the Facebook page prior to the date .


Our walks are not graded. Everyone does the same walk therefore a good level of fitness is required. On the day the walk leader can refuse to take someone who is not properly equipped or whom they consider to be not fit enough. The leader also decides on the route to be taken and has the authority to decide to cancel, postpone, shorten or reroute if the conditions demand it. They may also decide to move the walk to the Saturday if they feel the weather will be more favourable.

Members are required to bring adequate gear to meet the adverse weather conditions and any emergencies that can occur in the mountain environment. The following is a list of recommended gear: - Suitable boots, raingear, maps, compass, whistle, torch, suitable clothing for the conditions (No Denims), gloves, hat, enough food and drink for the day and lastly a suitable rucksack with waterproof liner. NB No Dogs.  ATTENTION: Walks leaders and wall managers; please make alternative arrangements if unable to attend.







There is interest in having a w/e away in the Mournes later in the year. Info will appear during the Summer.


The climbing wall will close for the Summer months on Thursday 30th. March. Climbing will continue outdoors in the Gap of Dunloe on Thursday evenings. In the event of poor weather the climbing wall may open

As parking is restricted in some of the areas that we visit we recommend car sharing to minimise the number of vehicles.

Currently we hold two walks on the designated Sunday. The main walks are listed in the calendar. These generally start early and can be long and strenuous. The alternative walks start later and are easier. These are advertised on an ad hoc basis at the moment. information on both walks will be sent to members and will be published on our Facebook page on the Friday/Saturday preceding the walk.


Following the success of last year's BBQ we again will hold the 2023 BBQ in Kilmacilloge. Date will be announced later.
