The Ramblers started their walk at the Church Hall near the photogenic Royal Canal harbour in Ballynacargy on Sunday 11 November 2018. They walked a loop route through Lakingstown to the canal near Kiddy's Bridge and returned to the village along the towpath. Back in the Church Hall they were treated to delicious scones by Patricia Bruton, the Ramblers Chair, who also led the walk, so thank you to her for both.
