Boherquill Ramblers

Warm sun, birdsong and the smells of the forest were some of the pleasures experienced during the Ramblers walk near Glasson on Sunday 16 June 2019. Add to that some wonderful views over Lough Ree from Caraun Hill at the beginning of the walk and banks of rhododendrons in flower beside the road through the forest later in the afternoon. With a bit of history thrown in as the route later passed through the ruins of  Waterstown House a very varied afternoon's walk was enjoyed by all.

There will be no walk on Sunday 30 June 2019 as Streete Vintage Festival will be held over the weekend. The Ramblers send their best wishes to the Festival Committee and trust the day will be as successful as in previous years.

New members and new walks are always welcome. For details phone Philip at 087 7753612 or Nini at 086 8754411.  See boherquillramblers.ie
