Beginner’s Walk

Famine Village

Our resident historian/walker, Seamus is leading a Beginner’s walk this Sunday, November 1st in the Cooleys, taking in the historic “Famine Village”. This walk will last for 2/2.5 hours and is suitable for those with little or no hill walking experience. Walkers must be wearing walking boots and have a wind/waterproof jacket. Bring a packed lunch.

Our other Groups, C and B will be in the Mournes, our route(s) may vary depending on numbers for each group on Sunday, but will be in the Baans Rd-Lough Shannagh-Doan-Ott area. B and C Groups should expect to be out for 4/4.5 hours, (not including travelling time- add an hour for travel in each direction).

Mournes walkers should have a basic level of fitness, for guidance check out the FAQ section of our website. All new walkers are required to walk with our C Group for their first walk regardless of experience and fitness.

All walkers meet at the Gap O’ the North Pub, Jonesboro’ at 10 am for registration.
