The hill walking group has been active for over 10 years and continues to go from strength to strength. There are now over 70 members and each Saturday morning members gather at the club to head off for hikes in the Dublin or Wicklow mountains. Hikes vary from challenging (up to 5 hours duration with significant ascents) to more moderate hikes (around 3 hours with small ascents).
As well as the opportunity to keep fit the walking group also provides members with a great social outlet with each walk normally finishing with tea and scones. The success of the group has meant that there continues to be strong interest in joining the group.
However, the numbers that can be accommodated on the walks each week has to be managed carefully, due to the limited number of experienced walk leaders in the club.
The contact person for the walking group is Therese Keville and she can be contacted at [email protected] .
