Charity Cycle & Hike

 Well done to everyone who took part in our hike with the Jonesboro’ Charity Cycle event on Sunday. For those of you who don’t know, our hill walking group grew out of the Charity Cycle around 3 years ago. From a handful of locals involved in the cycle event, it has since grown to a Hill Walking Club of around 80 members, from across the South Armagh, North Louth and South Down areas.

From its initiation the club has been committed to walking in the local area and we are probably the only club regularly walking in the Ring of Gullion on; Croslieve, Camlough, Tiffcrum, Fathom and Carrickbroad mountains.

We meet every second Sunday at 10 am in the Gap pub Jonesboro’. Walks last for around 4 hours and there is always a warm welcome back at the Gap after each walk.

Our next walk is Croslieve, (Forkhill mountain), on the 20th of July.  If you enjoyed Sunday’s Hike and would like to join us on one of our regular more challenging walks, check out our FAQ page for details about kit, levels of fitness required etc.

Remember all the money you helped raise through participating in Sunday’s event goes to a range of worthy local charities, including NI Cancer Fund for Children, Newry and District Gateway Club, Carrickore Children’s Parents’ Group, Helping Hand and Meningitius Now.
