Summer Mixed Doubles - Finals Day

posted by Philip Mulligan

The final matches of the Mixed Doubles took place on Sunday followed by a BBQ, prize giving in the bar and a heavy downpour that thankfully we avoided. Great turnout on Sunday for the matches and the BBQ afterwards and there was a real buzz about the place.

Huge thank you to Sharon and Tara for cooking all the food for 50 people or thereabouts on the small BBQ and keeping it hot until it was served. Thanks to Anu for looking after the salads etc in the bar and doing all the preparation work upstairs. Big thank you to everyone who brought desserts and salads as we had loads of food to go around and we needed every bit of it.

Thanks to the 6 captains who managed the groups over the 3 weeks Tara, Colum, Aidan, Olive, Denis and Caroline. Thanks to the subs who came in on Sunday and throughout the tournament.

Finally thanks to everyone who played as it was a great turnout and so good to see so many new members taking part. As we said on Sunday we will organise another one in the Autumn.

Well done to all the winners in each group (prizes went to top male and female in each group). Peter and Tara, Giz and Nadine, Ed and Karen, John and Olive, Rory and Niamh and Colm and Cara.

And so to the final league table (note if points are equal it goes to whoever had the most wins without a sub):

Walking Group conquers Lugnaquilla

posted 12 Jun 2019, 08:45 by Philip Mulligan

The walking group conquered the highest mountain in Leinster last Saturday when we climbed Lugnaquilla. Great turnout of 21 and the weather was kind, well almost so we had a shower on the way down but the skies were clear as we climbed and at the top so we will take that any day. Check out the photos below. The next walk will be in July, date and venue still to be confirmed. Should have more details in the next few weeks.







Our Ladies Class 5 team qualify for the playoffs in the summer league

posted 12 Jun 2019, 08:18 by Philip Mulligan

Congratulations our Ladies Class 5 team who have qualified for the playoffs in the summer league. Good week overall with 4 wins amongst all the teams. The Ladies class 3 team’s result is not in for this week as yet and the team is sitting third heading into the final match while in Class 5 the second team had a great 5-0 home win against Monkstown last week and followed it up with a 3-2 home win against Kilternan Parish this week to finish second in their group and head for the playoffs. They are away to Blackrock next Tuesday night in the round of 16 though the date and venue still has to be confirmed. Our other Class 5 team had a great 4-1 win at home to Shankill this week. In the men’s our Class 4 team lost 4-1 away to Rathgar but still lie third going into the final group match while the Class 6 team won 3-2 at home to Monkstown. Best of luck to all teams in this week’s matches and to the Ladies next week in the playoffs.

Mullaghcleevaun the second highest mountain in Leinster conquered on Saturday

posted 29 May 2019, 02:20 by Philip Mulligan

Great turnout of 18 for the walking group's assault on Mullaghcleevaun on Saturday. Thanks to Tom and local guide Pat for guiding everyone up and down safely in the fog. Pity about the weather as there are some stunning views of West and East Wicklow from the top. We will do it again on a better day. Check out the photos from the day below. The next walk is on Saturday 8th June and will be the highest mountain in Leinster, Lugnaquilla. Full details to follow next week. 




Tree Planting Ceremony in Memory of Members Passed

posted 22 May 2019, 01:22 by Philip Mulligan

There was a good turnout on Saturday for the Tree planting ceremony in memory of members passed including family members of those members recently deceased. Thanks to Sam for providing and planting the tree, Oisin for the plaque, Tony for pulling it all together and Arthur for his kind words on the day. The ceremony was followed by tea and coffee and thanks to all the members who brought along food for the day.









Hill Walk - Kanturk and Scarr Saturday 27th April

posted 1 May 2019, 05:41 by Philip Mulligan

Bit of a wild and windy one last Saturday so we had to improvise our walk and stay in the valley. Good turnout of 19 and it was good to get out despite the windy weather. See photos from the day below.






Hill Walking – Saturday April 6th Tonelagee/Scarr

posted 10 Apr 2019, 03:42 by Philip Mulligan   [ updated 10 Apr 2019, 03:52 ]

We didn’t do the planned walk of Tonelagee on Saturday as when we arrived the river we had to cross right at the start was overflowing and the stones we normally use to cross over were well under water. So we changed the route and did Scarr instead. Good crowd of 18 turned out and while it was cool at the top we had lovely sunshine as we came down the mountain. Check out the photos below.

Dates for next few walks and proposed mountains:

Saturday 27th April – Kanturk and Scarr

Saturday 11th May – Mullaghcleevaun (2nd highest in Leinster)

Saturday 8th June - Lugnaquilla (Highest in Leinster)
