Please Text Paul Egan by Tue 20th June if you intend going on the walk.

Leader’s Note: This is an easy walk with a half km downhill to the Boyne but no rise. As usual boots are required and sticks are advisable, if it is wet the first section will be very muddy. Shorts are not advisable as this section is overgrown with nettles and long grass. There are no known issues with the second section.

Directions from Skerries: Take the M1 north towards Drogheda, cross the Mary Mc Aleese Toll Bridge and take Junction 10 for the N51 left towards Slane/Navan.
