Blackstairs WalkThe Wayfarers Association Annual Blackstairs walk will take place on Saturday 18th May 2013.

The walk is a 30.5 Km. (19.0 Mile) mountain walk along the Carlow-Wexford border. The walk begins at Killanure (Grid Ref. S 890 537) off the R746 (previously L32) road from Bunclody to Kiltealy, and ends at Byrnes Pub in Glynn (Grid Ref. S 745 395). The walk involves a cumulative ascent of 1,670 metre and takes an average of 9 hours to complete. A certificate will be awarded to all those who complete or participate in the walk.

Pre-registering, while not mandatory, will help the organisers plan for the number of people who will be taking part and will guarantee you a place on the bus. Pre-registration is available at http://groupspaces.com/WayfarersAssociation/item/362805.

Two buses will leave at 6.45 for the start of the walk. One will leave from St. Mullins (the campsite), the other from Glynn. The bus trip and entry fee will cost €15.00, payable on the bus. Participants are advised not to drive to the start as there is NO official transport from the finish back to the start. The bus should be used to the start.
