Christmas Walk 2017
This year eight of us defied the inclement weather predictions and met up at Scholars Pub near Oldbawn for our annual Christmas walk. Conditions were overcast with a strong north westerly wind. At 11.15 we moved off to our starting point on the Kilbride Rifle Range road.
Our principle objective was the summit of Seechone Mountain. We followed a trail through Seahan Forest till we picked up the ridge which led us top the top of Seechone. Up to that point we had been well protected from the biting wind. But at the top it was a different matter. On the way down the mountain we again picked up a trail through the forest leading us back to our cars. The 10km took us a little over two hours to complete. We all returned to Scholars for a quick coffee and home.
Participant’s we Darragh Dunne, Bernie Grogan Gerry Glynn, Sharon & Donal Dwyer, Shannon (friend of Dryers), John & Peter Smyth
