Bush & Briar Ramblers

The weather last weekend dictated the numbers participating in sporting events around the country, but for the Bush & Briar Ramblers it was business as usual with organised walks on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday 25th Jan, 15 walkers completed an interesting and unusual variation of the Knockalough Loop, with of course the regular heavy rain that has accompanied most of our walks to date. You could say “Knockalough Loop with a twist”

On Sunday 26th Jan, we had 6 walkers take to the Devils Bit in conditions that were not as bad as forecast but still gave us a taste of 4 seasons in just a few hours. We went off the beaten track to see some of the hidden beauty that our local mountain has to offer. “The Devils Bit but not as you know it”

 Wet but Happy on Knockalough
Off the beaten track on the Devils Bit

Thanks to everybody who turned up for our walks and helped to make them so enjoyable
and a special word of welcome to those who joined us for the first time last weekend.
We hope to see you all out again in the future.
