Challenging navigation

Sunny Sunday for first walk of Season

32 walkers turned out for the first walk of the season on Sunday 6th September. The walk involved a very pleasant hike to the top of Mount Leinster, via Shannon’s Lane and Stony Top. The purple hue on the hills was most pleasant as the photos will illustrate. The group returned in time to enjoy the All Ireland Hurling Final in Kiltealy.
