Membership of the Club is open to individuals who accept that hill walking is an activity with inherent risks of personal injury and or death and agree to be responsible for their own actions and involvement.

Hill walking requires significant effort so it is wise to ensure that there are no Medical Reasons why you should not participate.

If in doubt, check with your GP. If you have a Medical Condition which could affect your participation in this sport, it is YOUR responsibility to inform/discuss this with any club committee member. This information will remain confidential.

As a rough guide we think that you need to be comfortably capable of walking from the lower courtyard car park at Slieve Gullion forest park via the forest drive and take the new mountain path from the upper car-park to the summit cairn (cave) and back in 3 hours. This walk is approximately 10km and climbs 450 m but is all on both tarmac forest drive and very good mountain paths. This should mean that you are fit enough for our C group. This is only a guide to a minimum level of fitness required.

Participation in any given walk is at the discretion of walk leader on the day.
