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.

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.
