Bush & Briar Ramblers


With the fantastic weather last weekend, the Bush & Briar Ramblers made the most Saturday last with a walk on the Silvermines Ridge. It was great to see some new faces out with the regular gang. All had a very enjoyable morning ramble in perfect walking weather with beautiful views.

Next Saturday 28th June we head back to our spiritual home of the Devils Bit for a relaxing stroll, approx 3hrs walking at an easy pace. Usual arrangements apply. Meet at the rear car park of Shanahan’s Centra in Borrisoleigh at 08.45hrs for departure at 09.00hrs. Boots essential. Drink and a snack highly recommended. We look forward to your company. Happy Rambling.
