Hi All,
I'm not part of your hiking club so I hope you don't mind me asking for advice on wild camping. One of your club members did give me good advice (a few months ago) on Pigeon Rock Glen, which I'm yet to do.
Anyhow if you could advise us, me and a friend are looking to wild camp (or use a camp site if available) to hike the Mournes and maybe the Cuilcagh Boardwalk in Fermanagh. I know they're not close together but they're bucket list items for is Errigal, lots of driving I guess lol. I don't want to spend a fortune, as I may not use the tent much, but any advice on tents and related equipment?
Thanks in advance.

Hello Galtee Walking Club
We have a small nonprofit for assisting youth, and recently started a Summer Walking Club for teens. We are hoping by the end of summer to celebrate their engagement with a small party. We've created a GoFundMe page to fundraise for this effort. We found your page on Twitter and hope you would contribute to this project. You may contact us via Twitter direct messages or email us at with any questions you may have. See link to the fundraising page:

Thank you, Team STAY

Hi Syl,
Refer to joining the club tab on our website. The 'A' grade is for fit and experienced walkers and can last from 5 to 7 hours with a considerable amount of climbing. 'B' grade walks usually last around 4 hours, are reasonably paced, and usually but not always involve some climbing. The 'C' grade is the easiest of all, often on forest tracks, taking 2 to 3 hours and stopping for several breaks along the way.
If you're not sure of your level of fitness it's probably better to start on the 'C' grade walks rather than risk finding yourself out of your depth on the faster, longer walks. You can always move up the grades later if you find you are not being challenged enough. Regards Aidan

I am looking to join the club, the difficulty of the walks A, B, and c. Could someone explain the differences?

I'm going to do the Beara to Breifne way this summer with members of my family. Have been reading your accounts with interest - would it be possible to contact Mike Moroney or anyone else in the club who did it for some extra advice?
best wishes

To all my friends a merry Christmas and a very happy new year
Though our grand hobby is put on hold we should not despair
Just keep the chin up, be positive all walkers A B and C
When all this has ended the Galtee’s will still be there to welcome you and me
