Good news at last!


The New Normal

To keep all of us as safe as possible and to exercise social responsibility, the new arrangements are as follows:

Fully comply with Mountaineering Ireland and Public Health Advice

There can be no carpooling, so we’ll go directly to the start

Maintain Social Distancing at all times

Use good hygiene (advisable to bring sanitizer and face mask, in case required)

Limited numbers on walks: the maximum number of participants on many walks will be restricted because of car parking constraints.

To be fair to all members and to facilitate managing the walks, it will be clearly indicated when a walk is open for booking.

To book a place on a walk, please contact the walk contact person directly and by text, and only after booking has been opened for that walk. Bookings can not be accepted before the date indicated.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Until and unless otherwise notified, the walks will start at 10;30.

It is intended to keep these arrangements under continuous review.
