Lovely walk around Upper and Lower Lough Bray on Saturday. Bit misty at the start but once it cleared you could see the full views in all their glory. Big turnout of 19 retired to Glencree Reconciliation centre for refreshments afterwards where upstairs they had details of Operation Shamrock which brought German refugee children to the centre in Glencree after the war. One of the photos was of our own Liz O’Gorman making her communion. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Check out photos from the walk below. We are not sure yet when the next walk will be given that we are heading into the summer months but should have details in the next week or so.

Hike up Brockagh, Glendalough

posted 16 May 2018, 13:37 by Philip Mulligan

Beautiful day on Saturday as 13 of us climbed big and little Brockagh in Glendalough, the day meant we had spectacular views of the Glendalough valley and surrounding mountains. We adjourned to the Wicklow Heather afterwards for some well earned chowder. Check out photos below. Our next hike is on Saturday May 26th with details to follow shortly. 



Hikers conquer Tonelagee

posted 2 May 2018, 08:19 by Philip Mulligan

Another great walk last Sunday as the tennis hike went up Tonelagee which is the 3rd highest mountain in Wicklow. Good turnout of 16 enjoyed the clear day, fantastic 360 views the, but weren’t as impressed with the bitter wind at the top. Will someone let the man up above know that it’s May!

This was a real hill walk as there weren’t too many defined paths but all made it up and down safely thankfully.. Check out some photos from the walk below. Next walks will be on Saturdays 12th and 26th May, more details to follow soon.
