Congratulations to all club volunteers on the very successful 2019 Knockmealdown Crossing. Thanks to your effort and the that of the participants the club will be making a donation to charity in May 2019. The committee invites your suggestions as to which charities should benefit. Last year, 2018, we supported SEMRA (€300) and Barrettstown (€100), It is envisaged that similar funds will be available this year.
After the exhilaration of the KND Crossing, and the excess of chocolate over Easter it is back to exercise on The Comeraghs next Sunday with three walks planned. Leaders are
