We have heard of a number of break-ins to vehilces so please while on walks do not leave anything visible in your car, put change of clothes into the booth of the car and carry all of your valuables (keys, money, credit cards, jewellery, mobile phone, etc) with you (put them into a plastic bag and into your rucksack). - Michael C

Hags Glen Saturday 10th March

Excellent days walking in the Hags Glen last Saturday for the large group who completed the Hags Tooth - Beenkeragh - Carrauntoohil - Cahir - Heavenly Gate circuit. The views from ground level were excellent but as we climbed the visability got poorer. (see image of Carrauntoohil taken from Beenkeragh.) Not easy to climb all 3 of the highest peaks in Ireland in one walk but the group succeeded. All in all 7 hours of excellent walking and scrambling.
For those members planning on doing the Maamturks Challenge Walk this was an excellent training opportunity. Keep up the good work. Michael C
