Bush & Briar Ramblers

Last weekend we had 2 beautiful walks. The weather was perfect walking conditions, dry, mild and fresh allowing for excellent views on route.
Saturday we did a gentle loop in Latteragh forest that was a lovely relaxing walk.
Sunday saw us move to Kilcommon where we did the pilgrim looped walk but also added on the ascent of Mother Mountain (MauherSlieve) which was very
appropriate for Mothers Day. The panoramic view from the summit is, to use an american phase, "Awesome". Really worth the climb.
Next organised walk in on Sunday 6th April 2014
Meeting are the rear car park of Shanahan’s Service Station at 08.50hrs for departure at 09.00hrs.

For more information on any of our walks, contact us by email on: bushandbriarramblers@gmail.com
