Carnew notes December 22


Potential new walkers please note… Would you like to come along with the Tinahely walking club on their first walks after Christmas? You might like it. A weekly walk could be a healthy New Year’s resolution you could keep (most of the time or some of the time). E-mail Robert Duffy at for further information.

On Sunday Dec 28 the walk is at Croghan-Moira (Grade B, 14km, 4 hours approx) meeting in Tinahely square at 10.30pm. On Sunday January 4 the walk is Haddens Hill-Crossbridge New Year Walk (Grade B, 10-12km, 3 hours approx) meeting in Tinahely Square.  Please ensure to wear proper walking boots, to bring adequate food & drink and to pack (or wear) rain gear. (Walk grades: A is the hardest and C is the easiest – depends on gradient and duration.) Full walking schedule is on the Tinahely Website.
