Bush and Briar Ramblers

Saturdays Hillwalking Group

Sundays Hillwalking Group

The new Borrisoleigh hillwalking club, the “Bush and Briar Ramblers” held our first outings on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November and were very successful two to two and a half hour hill walks as we rambled in Knockanroe Woods, Silvermines enjoying beautiful scenery, plenty of fresh air and great exercise. Special thanks to everyone who took part and made our walks such a success on both days. Thanks also to our leader, John F. Kennedy, for organising and leading the groups each morning and ensuring everyone’s safety and enjoyment. We will advertise future outings on ‘Borrisoleigh.ie’ so watch this space for information, and come and join us!
