Saturday walkers meet up at the Atlantic Technological University (old Sligo IT) car park beyond the Saturday market for 10am departure.

BUT, walk leaders might use their discretion to change the meeting point so it is recommended that new walkers, wishing to join Sligo Walking Club, call the person who is designated contact for that walk - they can advise you on walk details, meeting point and possible car pooling

We look forward to meeting you.
