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)
