Thirty par­tic­i­pants took to the route around the Mot­tee Stone and Min­ers Cross last week. We were spared any rain and could en­joy the mag­nif­i­cent views over the beau­ti­ful Vale of Avoca and South Wick­low.

This week is the penul­ti­mate walk of the sea­son and takes us to the Ju­bilee Loop in Rath­drum. Walk­ers are ad­vised that we all meet in the car park of Ss. Mary and Michael Church on the Laragh Road in Rath­drum for 7 p.m. The walk will start from there.
