Slieve Martin


This Sunday our Leaders, Adrian and Jimmy are leading a walk on Slieve Martin, Kilbroney. They have scouted routes to give the option of B and C Groups splitting along the way, this will depend on numbers and who turns up on the day, but the decisions as to if, where and when the split occurs and who walks with each Group will be decisions made by the Leaders on the day and will be made with Group safety in mind. Both Groups will be out for 3½ to 3¾ hours, C Group will walk around 8/9 km the B Group 12.5 km but there will be a great difference in the pace if the split occurs.

Depending on the routes Leaders decide upon on the day, walkers may be walking on Slievemartin, Slievedermot, Slievefadda, Slievemeen… but if the current weather holds up no matter what the route the scenes will be stunning!

As always walking boots, a waterproof jacket and a packed lunch are essential. Expect it to be several degrees colder on top, so layers are advisable and carry an extra layer of clothing in your rucksack.

We will be driving to Kilbroney and using the upper car park, car pooling will be organised on Sunday morning, so please could everyone be punctual, so that we can get this organised. Meet at the Gap O’ the North Pub, Jonesborough for 10 am.

Membership is up at the end of March, so membership will reopen on Sunday 3rd of April, ( i.e. the next walk), membership remains at £20 OR 25 Euros for the year. New members very welcome.

Members please note, if you are interested in joining us on our planned Saturday walk on the 30th of April, the cost will be £10 for the bus, and will be collected this Sunday.
