We had our first Saturday Hike on the 15th of June to the summit of Church Mt, this walk was very well attended by the group, the weather was ideal for walking bright sunshine and a nice refreshing breeze,  the group took some fantastic photos of the panoramic view over King’s River valley and the plans of Kildare. We are very fortunate to have four experience team leaders available to guide our walks. Alan and Trina Burke and John and Ann Fitzgerald are very familiar with the trails and hill around Wicklow. They have extensively study St Kevin’s Way behalf of the Hollywood Community Forum, their feedback has be invaluable to the upgrading and improvement work being undertaking on this important Pilgrim Path.
