Wild, weird walk at the reser­voir

Wicklow People - - PICTURES -

DEMONS, goblins and witches of all shapes and sizes en­sured any­one walk­ing the Vartry Reser­voir was in for a ter­ri­fy­ing ex­pe­ri­ence they weren’t likely to for­get any­time soon.

The can­dle­light walk took place on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 28, with all the pro­ceeds raised shared be­tween Round­wood District Com­mu­nity Coun­cil and Round­wood AFC.

At least a cou­ple of hun­dred peo­ple took part, pack­ing out the car park in the process. Regis­tra­tion took place at Round­wood AFC grounds and then each fam­ily set off along the trail, which looked spec­tac­u­lar lined by can­dles.

With it be­ing so close to Hal­lowe’en some of the younger par­tic­i­pants de­cided to dress up for the oc­ca­sion, adding a litte more fun to the evening.

This is the sec­ond time the walk has been or­gan­ised by Round­wood AFC. The in­au­gu­ral event last year proved so suc­cess­ful it was de­cided it would be a shame not to do it all again.

The Vartry Reser­voir loop walks pro­vide 20km of beau­ti­ful walks to the com­mu­nity of Round­wood and to visi­tors to the area.

The Doyles and the O’Shaugh­nessys head off on the can­dlelit walk or­gan­ised by Round­wood AFC by the reser­voir.
