Will be lovely to see everyone on the hills and get out after all the eating and drinking (maybe make room for more!!😋)

Slieve Gullion Walk

Slieve Gullion Walk

We had one  group out on Slieve Gullion yesterday and it was a glorious day so lots of photographs!

We are so lucky to have this resource on our doorstep and as a group we continue to work to leave the hills cleaner than we find them… We collected 2 bags of litter but unfortunately, sleeping bags and a tent left on the top have blown into the lake and despite Margaret’s heroic efforts, were just too far out of reach for us to retrieve. Check out the photos.

Please if you carry it up, take it home again!!! 

We will be back out in 2 weeks and with the Gap O’ The North, Beer Garden now open for “after walk refreshments”  it is beginning to feel like a return to normality is not far off. Watch this space….
