•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
All new club members and visitors will be expected to do at least one ‘B’ walk to allow their walking abilities to be assessed OR to provide evidence of having recent ‘A’ walk experience before they will be permitted to join a club ‘A’ walk.
