Dunmanway Hillwalking Club has put together a varied programme of walks for the next six months. Club organisers are always hoping to increase membership and so existing members are encouraged to spread the word or bring along a friend or two.

This year the club hopes to fulfill its promise to plan a nightime walk, possibly in the Sheep’s Head area, some time in February or March, depending on the weather and a full moon. Ideas on this are welcome.

Non-members are welcome to come along for a walk or two before deciding to become a member. If interested, contact John Curtin 087 7769637, Denis O’Mahony 086 0610220 or Tommy Collins 086 1225867 for more information on the walks and necessary gear. Membership for adults is just €45 (including insurance), Family Membership is €75 or Associate Membership is available for €10.

All walkers must wear suitable hillwalking gear including boots – no trainers, wellies or jeans allowed – and must make their own personal judgement as to their capability to undertake a walk. Grade B are moderate walks along road, track and cross country routes with a little climbing. Grade A are more strenuous walking along tracks and cross country with more challenging climbs. A good level of fitness is required.

Walkers gather in SuperValu carpark, Dunmanway at 8.30am unless otherwise arranged. Please note that walks may change or be cancelled due to weather or any other unforeseen circumstances.

It is essential to reply to texts prior to a walk so that organisers can ascertain numbers interested in walking.
