SKERRIES WALKING CLUB
As Covid 19 restrictions have recently eased somewhat, the Club has been able to resume walks in a limited capacity. Please refer to the Walks Programme section for the latest upcoming walks.
The Club has decided to suspend new membership applications for July and August in order to limit numbers in response to the Covid 19 restrictions. Unfortunately, the usual ‘taster walks’ which are on offer to prospective new members are not available for the moment.
Welcome to Skerries Walking Club
Skerries Walking club was formed in 2017 with a view to providing a Club within the town to cater for people who wanted to walk as an organised activity. The primary objective of the Club is to facilitate and increase the enjoyment of walking and mountaineering activities by members of the Club. Local walks, rambles and hill walks are all part of the Club’s activities. The Club currently has around seventy members of varying ages and is open to new members who wish to join. There is a Walks Programme which is developed as the year progresses and provides a variety of walks to suit all types of walker.
Walks continue all year round, whether they are local walks which take place in Ardgillan Demesne or around Skerries itself, or whether they are rambles or hill walks. The emphasis is on providing a variety of walk types in varying locations. The length and duration of walks depends on the walk leader and each leader brings their particular emphasis and style to each walk.
Rambles and hill walks will include a lunch stop (you bring your own packed lunch) and may include a visit to a local coffee shop or pub as part of the social side of the Club’s activities.
Even though the Club is relatively recently formed, it had its first Weekend Away in the Slieve Bloom mountains in May 2019. It is expected that weekends away will form a regular part of the Club’s activities into the future.
