A few details about tomorrow’s Slieve Gullion walk, the B Group walk is approximately 14 km and climbs 700 m, conditions should be dry underfoot and the walk will last around 5 hours! Note 5 hours!!!!
The C Group will have a similarly challenging walk keeping up with their preparation for Kerry.
Remember this is the penultimate walk before Kerry, all those of you travelling down, and there is an expectation that you attend these more challenging walks in preparation for Carrauntoohil!
The Beginner’s Group on the other hand will have a more leisurely, shorter walk lasting only about 2/2.5 hours, keeping mostly to paths. Seamus will be along to relate some of the history and stories associated with the mountain and its hinterland.
All walkers should meet at the Gap O’ the North Pub, Jonesboro’ at 10 am, for registration and a safety briefing. Walkers must be wearing deep tread walking boots, have a water/wind proof jacket and bring a packed lunch/drink.
