Boherquill Ramblers

On Sunday 12 June 2022 Marian Carty led the Ramblers on a walk at Lough Rynn. The loop walk was based on the old estate and passed some of the many cut-stone gate lodges and cottages including a large restored lime kiln, church and beautiful cottage at Farnaught. There was shelter from a couple of showers as the route followed roads through several wooded areas coloured by the rhododendrons in full bloom.

Unfortunately there were also signs of die-back in many ash trees. Thank you to Marian for leading such an interesting and informative walk. There will be no Ramblers walk on Sunday 26 June 2022 as Streete Parish Park's Annual Vintage Show is returning this year after missing two years due to the Covid pandemic. The Ramblers wish the Show Committee all the best and trust the show will be as successful as ever. If you would like to add a walk, new or old, to this year's Walks Calendar please contact Philip Epps. See for more information.
