Boherquill Ramblers

The Ramblers had a very busy weekend on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April 2022. On Saturday some of the Ramblers were among the many who walked in Mullaghmeen Forest as part of the nationwide Climb with Charlie walks.

The Ramblers joined the large crowd who set out from Ringtown GAA Club for its Climb with Charlie walk on Sunday to head for the summit of Knockeyon where they were entertained with songs from Liam Fagan. The weather was perfect for the walk whose highlight was the wonderful views of Lough Derravaragh and the surrounding countryside.

Thank you to the Delamere family for allowing access to Knockeyon and to Liam for the music.
There will be no walk on Sunday 17 April 2022 as it is Easter Sunday. All Ramblers are wished a Happy Easter.

If you would like to add a walk, new or old, to this year's Walks Calendar please contact Philip Epps.
