Report on Vincent Normoyle's B walk.
17 walkers started from the Grubb monument, went to Bay Lough - and did not see Petticoat Loose! Back up from the oratory, to the top of Sugarloaf, then round the back and descended at the Vee. A great walk in spite of mist. Visibility not bad. Thanks to Vincent and his crew.
Thanks to Danny Bailey for the C walk from Clydagh Bridge.

Thanks to Brian McSherry and Eddie McGrath for the walks on Sunday last. Brian took his B group around Cush to avoid being blown off the mountain and on to Lake Borheen and got all down safely.

Thanks to Aidan Dilworth and Eddie McGrath for the walks on Sunday last. Aidan was leading his first walk for the club and it was a challenging but very enjoyable battle with strong wind! Eight walkers, including one new walker. Aidan got everyone there and back safely.
