On Sunday 28 April the Ramblers walked 14km of the Leafy Loop at Durrow, County Laois, a wonderful mix of woodland, forest and the banks of two rivers, the Nore and the Erkina. The woods presented a beautiful picture with fresh new leaves on the trees and masses of blue bells and white-flowered wild garlic beneath. The weary group finally arrived back in the attractive centre of Durrow for some very welcome refreshments in the Castle Arms Hotel.
Thank you to Salmon's Coaches and their driver Alan Salmon who provided transport for the day. Thanks also to the staff of Abbeyleix Heritage Centre for opening their facilities for the club en route to the start of the walk.
