Your weekend walks

After a relatively dry weekend, we asked for details of your weekend walks with a particular emphasis on what the various walking clubs were up to.

Well done to West Tyrone Ramblers who celebrated their 25th anniversary by hiking to the summit of Slieve Donard in the Mourne Mountains.


You can find out more about the group at

Meanwhile, Paul Brown was with the Galway Walking Club as they climbed Letterbreckaun in Connemara on a beautiful calm day. The club’s have a very informative website which can be seen at


The Fermanagh Ramblers travelled further afield, taking in some of the joys of Snowdonia. We look forward to seeing a full trip report from the group.

Colm McCaffrey was checking out the new walkway on Cuilcagh, the highest point in Fermanagh and Cavan. Have you sampled the walkway, what are your thoughts on it?   @walkhikeireland Cuilcagh Mountain lovely walk great views — Colm McCaffrey (@colmmccaffrey) August 30, 2015The folks from the Sheep’s Head Way had the rather cool job mapping a loop and a linear walk with the Google Trekker. We understand the footage will go online in Feb 2015 so keep your eyes peeled.

The guys at Mountaintrails were walking the Wicklow Hills where they met some other intrepid explorers!

They also submitted a few pics showing the glorious colours on the Wicklow Mountains at the moment

The Galtee Mountains were the playground of Brian Buckley as he got a spot of trail running in over the weekend.

Well done to Nicky McDonnell who took in the County High Points of Meath (Loughcrew)and Westmeath (Mullaghmeen).

If you were out walking over the weekend, feel free to share your pics with us on Twitter, Facebook or by emailing
