Boherquill Ramblers

The Ramblers have often met at Mary Lynch's pub near Mullingar for a walk along the Royal Canal but on Sunday 27 March 2022 their walk included just a short walk along the canal to Footy's bridge, then it continued with a loop through Coralstown and Heathstown Bog back to base. Spring had definitely arrived with primroses flowering at the roadside and daffodils in nearly every garden along the way.

The birds provided the soundtrack from the trees which were bursting into leaf everywhere. On Sunday 10 April 2022 the Ramblers walk will begin at Killasonna School. Cars will leave Boherquill at 1.30pm and meet at 2pm at the school for an 8km road and farm track walk. A shorter route will be available.
If you would like to add a walk, new or old, to this year's Walks Calendar please contact Philip Epps.
