St. Patrick’s B.N.S.


Bush and Briar Ramblers

We enjoyed a lovely walk in Knockalough on Sunday 9th March. It is always a good challenge on those hills and a nice sense of achievement when its completed. The views were spectacular as we had a very mild morning and we only had a little mist at the end.

Watch this space for details of future walks. Happy St Patricks Day to all our Ramblers
