For our April walk we will walk the Divis and Black mountains. The weather hasn’t been kind to walkers recently, however, the weather forecast for this weekend is set to improve, so hopefully we will have good weather.

8th April – To Be Confirmed

Posted by Kieran | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 25-03-2018

As Easter Sunday is on the first Sunday of April we intend to move our April walk back a week to the 8th April

The weather is proving very troublesome, so before deciding on which route to walk in April, we thought we would wait until closer to the time before making a decision.

Closer to the time we will update the website and send out an updated email

11th March Walk – Update

Posted by Kieran | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 28-02-2018

Owing to the ongoing weather conditions, we had to postpone last weeks walk, however, as this Sunday is Mother’s Day, we thought that a long walk might not suit a lot of walkers. We are therefore going to put the Divis to Cavehill walk back to 8th April and instead have a short walk of less than 3 hours this Sunday on Divis.

Meet up :- Divis car park at 10.00 am

Posted by Kieran | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 16-01-2018

For our February walk we are going to walk Section 6 of the Lecale Way from Dundrum to Newcastle.

See below for link / map of the Lecale Way, we are going to walk Section 6 of the Lecale Way

http://www.walkni.com/d/walks/0/Lecale%20Way%20Section%206.pdf

This walk goes largely around the coastline, along the beach and through Murlough Nature Reserve and if the day is good there are stunning views of the Mournes to be seen.

Our plan is to leave our cars parked at Dundrum, walk to Newcastle, where we will have lunch, before returning to Dundrum to pick up our cars and have a little post walk refreshment.

We will meet up at Dundrum public car park which is opposite the Church. There are three car parks on your left, the first car park is the scene of a large car boot sale. The second one is a private one for the church and the last one is the public car park. This car park is the one in which we shall meet at 10.30am on Sunday 4th February. Please note that to avoid high tide, we will need to start our walk fairly punctually

We would encourage car sharing so if you need a lift or can offer one please reply.

As it would be useful to ensure we don’t start without everybody let us know if you intend to come on this walk.
