When Sunday 2th June, ferry time to be confirmed but approx 9.30am
Where – we will be travelling to Rathlin Island to enjoy the natural scenery and also to view the Puffins who will be nesting at this time
Travel Information – we hope to take the 9.30 fast sailing (25 min) from Ballycastle to Rathlin (to be confirmed)
If anyone is interested could they let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to arrange reservations with the ferry company. I think the price of the ferry is around £12 but I will ask about group discount
Our next walk will be held on Sunday 5th May. We will meet up at Divis car park at 10.00 am sharp, we intend to leave some cars at Divis and take some cars over to the Cavehill for the start of the walk.
The walk will be a linear walk from Cavehill to Divis and should be an enjoyable walk for everyone
Cooley Peninsula – Saturday 20th April
Joanne French who used to walk with the Glen Walkers before moving to Co Clare has invited everyone to join her and the West Clare Walking Group on a walk in the Cooley Peninsula, please see her message below. Original Message
Greeetings from West Clare!
Was checking the Glen Walkers website and see that the proposed Mournes Walk due April 7th has been postponed due to the weather. Well I have a proposal for you all.
My ‘West Clare Walking Club’ are planning a walk Saturday 20th April @ Cooley Penisula.
Approx 14 walkers staying at the Carrickdale Hotel Friday and walking Saturday 20th.
Anyone interested in joining club walks?
Sure let me know or check out their website www.westclarewalkingclub.ie
With the recent snow & cold, we have decided to reschedule the Mournes walk until another date.
Instead if the Mournes we were thinking of a walk on Divis, could we assemble at the Divis/ Black mountain car park at 10.00
WHEN – Aprils walk will be on Sunday 7th April
WHERE – We will walking 3 mountains, Cock, Hen and Pigeon, but don’t be worrying they are relatively small mountains
MEETING – Our meeting point will be Dundrum village Main Street @ 9.30am
APRÈS DRINK – Possibly the Maghera Inn.
More information on this walk can be found on the Walk NI website
As always can we ask people to car share as much as possible
WHERE :- meet up at Divis car park
WHEN :- meet up at 10:00 in car park at Divis / Black mountain
ROUTE :- the route will be decided closer to Sunday and will be determined by the weather
The mountains should be spectacular as the Spring takes over from the winter

Sorry for the late posting but we were trying to devise a walk which would avoid a lot of the heavy ground which is saturated after the recent snow and rain.
WHEN – We are going to meet up at Divis car park at 10.00 am on Sunday 3rd February
WHERE – the walk will hopefully go along the path towards Ligoneil, we will be going on a new route which Owen has suggested.
Après Walk – after the walk we hope to retire to the new Farmers, which is now called the Crooked Mile, where hopefully the fire will be blazing.
We hope to see everyone there, if anyone wants to join this or indeed any of our walks just pop along and introduce yourself.

Everything is in place for this years Christmas walk and dinner, The Ballymac Hotel has kindly allocated us two bedrooms to shower and change in, but could I ask people to bring their own towels, as the hotels towels may be limited.
Can I ask all walkers to assemble at the Divis / Black mountain car park at 12:00 mid-day, our walk will only be around 4 hours as we are planning to be off the mountain by 4:00pm, this will include a short break half way through the walk, so bring your flasks
There will be a number of non drinkers who can transfer walkers to the hotel (approx 10 min) so can I ask anyone intending to drink to leave their cars at home, any change of clothing etc can be left in the boots of the non drinkers cars.
