Walking Group: Fofanny Dam

posted 7 Aug 2017, 01:37 by St Johns GAC   [ updated 7 Aug 2017, 01:37 ]

Our walking group started a busy week with a trip along the Ulster Way near Fofanny Dam on Saturday (6th August). Map reading skills were to the fore for this outing – as we found a route that was downhill all the way!


We are back out this Wednesday (9th August) – probably going to Lackan Bag near Ballyroney if the weather is kinder than the last time this was on the agenda (leaving the club at 7.00pm) and on Saturday 12th we are going to Blue Lough (leaving the club at 9.30am.)


Looking forward ahead we have a “parent and child” walk to Castlewellan on Saturday 2nd September. This is to give an opportunity who may otherwise have child-minding restrictions (or parent minding, depending on your perspective) to come along. The walk won’t be very strenuous, is likely to pass the playground and may involve getting parents and/or kids lost in the maze. There are no age restrictions on this or any walk.



Wed 9th Aug                          Castlewellan Forest Park


Sat 12th Aug                          Blue Lough (Mournes)


Thu 24th Aug                         Dundrum Coastal Path


Sat 2nd Sept                           Castlewellan Forest Park   parent & child


Saturday walks - meet at the club (St John’s GAC) and be ready to leave at 9.30am.


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.


Walks may change at short notice depending on weather etc.
