SLIEVE CROOB 17 AUGUST 19

For today's walk Jim Martin led a walk at Slieve Croob. Thanks to Helen Mallon for the photos.

BINNIAN TO HARES GAP 20 JULY 19

Six ramblers gathered at Meelmore Lodge for transfer to Carrick Little car park, the starting point for today’s walk. It was agreed that the proposed walks would merge and follow the high level route. From Carrick Little car park, the group ascended Slieve Binnian, following the Mourne Wall to the South Tor. From there we crossed to the North Tor before descending to the saddle at Slieve Lamagan and lunch. After lunch, we dropped down to Ben Crom Reservoir and followed the path to the Shelter Stone. From there, it was a gradual climb to the Hares’ Gap and then down to the finish at Meelmore Lodge. The fine weather provided excellent walking conditions and fine views.

JOHN MUIR WAY 9-17 JUNE 2019

Another excellent trail holiday, 95 miles(relatively flat) over seven walking days with a day travelling either side. The weather was surprisingly kind to us, only the one poor day as we walked from South Queensferry to Edinburgh. Most days the bad weather was above us, below us or to the side. The hotels and guesthouses I had chosen were good with a couple of hidden gems and the food was excellent. We believe the drinks were good but we abstained until the final evening! Thanks to the others for their great company and I was very pleased to start and complete the walk this year. Already planning for next year.


DOAN, BEN CROM 01 JUNE 19

Some pics from Saturday’s walk in the Mournes superbly led by Norman McElhinney. From Ott car park, past Ott, to foot of Bearnagh, on to Ben Crom, over to Doan and back to Ott car park. Great weather! Forecast rain never arrived. Low cloud at times but clear when it needed to be.(thanks to Dermot for the photos and text)

IRISH MUNROS 17-22 MAY 19

Ten years ago the club organised a trip to ascend the seven Irish Munros and Colin organised a repeat of that trip for nine members this year. The group ascended Brandon, Beenkeragh, Carrauntoohill, Caher, Cnoc na Peiste, Galtymore and Lugnaquilla over five days of hard walking. The group agreed to raise funds for the Friends of the Cancer Centre in Belfast and already over £1,400 has been raised. Thanks to Dermot for the photos and also for the YouTube video which may be viewable if you copy and paste this link into your browser https://youtu.be/iFkXpXDSbYQ . The final amount raised was an excellent £3,206.26.
