•Sunday Walks are held every three weeks throughout the year. ‘A’ walks are longer and harder. ’B’ walks are somewhat easier and more relaxed.•The club has a long walking weekend in spring (early May). Previous sorties have included trips to Scotland, Wales, The Lake District, Co. Kerry and the Isle of Arran. •In autumn (October) ,we have another walking weekend. In the past we have been to Achill, Westport, Donegal ,Wicklow and Galloway. •Mid-week (Thursday) walks are held every two weeks. These are usually easier, although no shorter, with an emphasis on enjoying the landscape.•Occasional trips abroad are organised independently from within the Club. •We organise our own training sessions.2018

Buses & Walks info from Sean Cunningham
Hi everyone,The B walk will be starting at an opening to a small track about half a mile before the main car park on the R251 (coming from Letterkenny). We will walk across quite boggy terrain so gaiters will be needed, then ascend Mini Errigal or Mackoght from which the views over Lough Altan and Errigal itself should be spectacular. We will then descend into the small valley and join the Errigal path to the summit (weather permitting).The path is very stony and quite slippery in places, with some fairly sheer ledges closer to the top so maybe bring 2 poles if possible. We will return to the main car park to board the bus.Here's hoping for a good day weather-wise on Sunday!Greetings everyone, Our next club walk will be an assault on Errigal this coming Sunday so fingers crossed for good weather on the day. Paul Connolly will lead the charge up the more challenging side which proved to be very tough for a few people last time due to a few narrow ledges. I will attempt to keep everyone together on the B walk where the views over the valley below should be spectacular, weather permitting. If it is anything like last time we may well be sitting in the pub for an afternoon waiting for the A's to return looking slightly shell-shocked. More details of both walks will be available later in the week.If you wish to book a seat on the bus we will be using for this once-in-a-lifetime extravaganza, please reply to this email by the end of FRIDAY. Please also state where you would like to be picked up.Stangmore 7.40STH Dungannon: 7.45Asda Cookstown 7.55Broad St Magherafelt 8.15Derry via Dungiven 9.05 (all times subject to traffic conditions on the day)
