•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 trips have included trips to Scotland, Wales, Lake District, Co. Kerry,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.2019

Tyrone, BT80 9ARHello everybody, This Sunday we are in the Cooley mountains in Co. Louth, with an A walk led by Paul Connolly, and a B walk by Lorraine and Michael Gilmour. Both of these will start at the Long Woman's Grave and finish in Carlingford village (possibly in the pub).Needless to say, the A group will take the high road, climbing quite a steep route over Foxes Rock and the Ravens Rock to follow the ridge line all the way over Carlingford mountain, with the highest point of Slieve Foy at 641 metres, before descending to the coast. Distance around 12-13k and 4-5 hours with some quite damp areas so definitely gaiters required for this one.Lorraine intends to take a lower road as follows.The B group will leave the car park and follow the road along for a short distance to the trail that leads into the Forest and contour round Slieve Foy over to Barnavave with lovely views down to Dublin and across to the Isle of Man. They will then drop down into Carlingford to be collected by the bus. Gaiters and poles are recommended as the ground is rough under foot.Bus pick will be at the usual places and times as follows: Asda Cookstown 08.00. STH. Dungannon 08.15. Stangmore roundabout08.20. Seagoe Road, Portadown 08.45.
