Another successful walk up Trooperstown Hill

The Tennis walkers are now being joined by the Kickstart hill walkers on the regular Tennis Hill Walks. Last Saturday 18 of us "conquered" Trooperstown Hill but unfortunately we missed out on the views at the top due to the heavy mist. However, Tom gave us a quick run through some map reading basics though it was hard to fully demonstrate these in the conditions. Things started to clear as we descended and we got some idea what we missed out on. Check out photos below from the day. Our next walk is on a Sunday April 29th and will be Tonelagee the third highest mountain in Wicklow at 817m. The plan is to climb Luqnaquilla before the end of May so Tonelagee will be good preparation for this. Hope to see you there.
