The Mealagh Valley Walks Group will be hosting a series of public walks next Sunday 18th October. There will be a variety of walking options to suit children, families, and more serious hikers.
These will include a guided nature walk along the Mealagh River – ideal for families with younger children. For the more adventurous, there will be a stiff hike through woodlands and over Mullaghmesha Mountain with breathtaking views of the West Cork coastline and Kerry mountains.
This will be the fifth year that the Valley group has held such a walking day, and on each occasion it has been tremendously popular with walkers of all ages enjoying the exercise, camaraderie and a fun day out.
Car-pooling will be arranged to and from the Mealagh Valley Community Hall beginning at 11.00am. Soup, sandwiches and refreshments will be served at the hall as walkers return.
Registration fee, including lunch will be €5 with any proceeds going towards the Mealagh Valley Community Hall, which provides a valuable resource to people of all ages living in the valley. .
Further information on the walks is available from Quentin Gargan on 086 869 3140 or firstname.lastname@example.org
