Walking Group: Slievemageogh

 

Our walking group went to the Mournes on Saturday (14th April), but couldn’t find them. We presume that they were still there, just hiding in the fog. Undaunted we followed the trail to Slievemageogh (Sliabh Mhig Eothach: the mountain in McGeogh’s townland) where the views of the mist on all sides were spectacular. Nonetheless it was good to get out for a wee walk, to enjoy the crack and to work up an appetite which was then sated at Meelmore Lodge.



 

On Tuesday 17th we have our first midweek walk with a trip to Murlough, leaving St John’s at 7.00pm. Our next weekend walk will be back to the Mournes on Saturday 28th April. Hopefully the fog will have lifted by then as we go to Blue Lough, leaving St John’s at 9.00am.

 

Contact Kevin McGlynn on 078 3596 0804 or kevin.mcglynn62@gmail.com if you are interested in coming along. 

 

Sat 28th April                         Blue Lough  

 

Sat 5th May                            Ballyhornan Coastal Path

 

Tue 8th May                           Slieve Croob

 

Tues 22nd May                      Bloody Bridge Coastal Path

 

Sat 26th May                          Divis Mountain

 

Saturday walks - meet at the club and be ready to leave at 9.00am.

 

Mid-week walks – meet at the club and be ready to leave at 7.00pm, or at the start of the walk 15/20/25 minutes later.

Walking Group: Lough Money



 

Our walking group went to St Patrick’s country on the last day of March to walk the loanins around Lough Money. This area was well storied before St Patrick made his mark as was evidenced by the dolmen, stone circles and standing stones we passed. We also enjoyed great views over the drumlin countryside, over Strangford Lough and over Lough Money (the lake of the bog), especially when we climbed to St Patrick’s statue.



 

Our next walk will be on Saturday 14th April when we go to Slievemageogh in the Mournes leaving St John’s at 9.00am. Our mid-week walks resume on the following Tuesday (17th April) with a trip to the seaside at Murlough (leaving St John’s at 7.00pm).

Walking Group: Causeway Coast



 

Our walking group enjoyed the spectacular scenery of the causeway coast cliff path on Saturday morning (24th February). This is five of the most outstanding walking in the country. It takes about twice the time as any other walk of similar distance as every turn brings views, and photo opportunities, to surpass the last. The famous causeway stones are only a small part of the whole experience.

 

The walk helped work up a healthy appetite. Fortunately the walk ended at the Causeway Hotel where a lovely lunch was served. Refreshed we headed to Bushmills for a tour of the world’s oldest licenced distillery. This did require product testing, purely scientific research for quality control purposes, and we managed to step up to the plate.



 

This was the last bus trip supported by the Public Health Agency (PHA) through the CLEAR Project. Part-funding was supplied by the PHA through this small grants scheme to improve the mental and emotional wellbeing of local communities.

 

Our Spring / Summer Schedule of walks is out now. The next walk will be on Saturday 31st March when we will follow parts of St Patrick’s way around Lough Money and Raholp. Mid-week walks resume on Tuesday 17th April.
