What a beautiful day it was to hit the trails on our third Guided walk for Active Agers this year.
On Thursday last, 40 eager Active Agers gathered in Tiermaclane (just outside Ennis) to head off on a 7.5 guided looped walk passing Cragbrien, Ballyea and returning to Tiermaclane.
We had a few inclines on the walk but as one walker said “What goes up, must come down” so it wasn’t too challenging for us!
The walk was on quiet local roads passing forestry and a stunning waterfall and we were accompanied by beautiful birdsong all the way.
Shortly before we reached the finish point, we passed the impressive ruins of the old Woulfe Estate, which has been unoccupied since the 1870’s.
Thanks to one of our new walkers, Nathalie Lauze, for sharing some of her photos.
Making our way back to Carrig’s Costcutter in Tiermaclane, we treated ourselves to tea/coffee and an array of fresh pastries and some of us even sat outside soaking up the sunshine – a real novelty for this time of year!
If you missed this walk, or you would like to walk it again, check out the route details here (Don’t forget to click on the walker at the top)
Our next walk will take place on Thursday 25th April at 11am – see details here.
We hope to see you then!
