Beginner’s Walk


Join Seamus this Sunday 13th of December for our Beginner’s Group Walk on the slopes of Slieve Gullion. A gentle ramble keeping to the lower slopes will take in many points of historical interest, including the remains of what we believe to be part of the ancient route between Tara and Armagh. Stop off at some of the long abandoned homesteads and hear about the families that once lived there, and why the “booley” sites contributed to a significant rise in the local population each year!!!

The walk will last for 2/2.5 hours including a lunch stop, Newcomers are very welcome, your first walk with us is free, membership thereafter is £20/year. All walkers must be wearing walking boots, bring a water/wind proof jacket, hat and gloves, jeans are not recommended as they get wet and stay wet, and you get cold!  Expect after all the recent rain the ground to be very wet underfoot.

Meet at The Gap O’ the North Pub, Jonesboro’ at 10 am for registration, we will car pool and drive to the starting point.
