A slightly wet day in Spancilhill

20 brave walkers showed up for our looped walk in Spancilhill last Thursday.
Our group was made up of mostly women so we argued that either the men were soft, or they had more sense and stayed at home out of the rain……..

Starting at the Spanchilhill Inn, we walked an 8.5 km loop passing some great sights like O’Brien’s Castle, O’Brien’s Lake, and the former Drumbaniff National School from 1890.

We arrived back to the start point just before the worst shower of rain, thankfully, and sone of the group made their way to nearby Barefield for some well deserved refreshments.

If you would like to do this walk yourself here is a link to the route.
One section of the walk is on a slightly busy road, so make sure to bring your high-viz.

Our next walk will take place on 8th February in Ardboula, Tulla – we will post about that soon!

Great neighbourhood watch in Spancilhill

Our first walk of the year

We were joined by 39 eager walkers last Thursday in Ogonnelloe for our first guided loop walk of 2024.

Our walk was just under 6km, breaking us in gently after the Christmas holidays. The weather was absolutely beautiful, bright blue skies and no rain – what more could you want for a walk.

Many made their walk back to Josie Anne’s for a coffee and a tasty treat. Sadly this was our last visit to Josie Anne’s as it closed a few days later. We would like to wish Elaine and her team the very best in the future and thanks for all the sweet treats 🧁

Our next guided walk will take place on Thursday 25th January in Spancilhill. If you would like to come along, you can text or WhatsApp Arlene on 086 358 6293.
