3 November 2019 Sugarloaf to Mt Melleray

Sunday, November 3rd.

The Vee to Mount Melleray.       Leader, Ollie Power.

Five of us met at Mount Melleray, Humphrey, Helena, John Roche, John Kennedy, and Ollie. It was dry, but the hills were covered in cloud, and there was a little chill in the air. We decided to start the walk from Baylough car park rather than the Vee, so we left Mount Melleray at 10 sharp in two cars, leaving our change of clothes in the other two cars. Having checked the Vee just in case anyone was there, we parked in Baylough, in a heavy drizzle, and started up to Sugarloaf. We caught our breath at the top, where it was foggy, raining and windy, and so it stayed for most of the walk. The rocks and ground were very slippy so we had to watch our steps, nevertheless we enjoyed a good steady pace up to and past Knockmealdown, where we found a sheltered spot for lunch. Shortly afterwards the cloud did break up, and we enjoyed views of and from Knocknagnauv and Knocknafallia. The cloud descended again however, so it was compass all the way to the woods, and a nice stroll from there to a welcome cuppa and apple tart at Mount Melleray.

Corrycommane Circuit Plus: Sunday 22 September 2019

Seven members enjoyed this walk.  We started along the Beara – Breifne Way at Dromgarriff and continued by track on the foothills of Cobduff Mountain and the Old Mill Road to Coomhola Bridge where we enjoyed lunch. Then it was uphill through magical sun-flecked forest onto open hillside giving magnificent views of Bantry Bay and Glengarriff Harbour.  The Caha Mountains and Sugarloaf were to our backs. It was a delightful walk in glorious Autumn sunshine with scintillating company.

A great day, in defiance of a bad weather forecast!

Burren Weekend 13-15 September

MAO_8736 MAO_8737 MAO_8804 MAO_8872 MAO_8913 MAO_8956 MAO_8962What a wonderful weekend of weather and unique Burren geology, enjoyed by 13 of our members.  On Friday afternoon, we took a short “stretch-the-legs” stroll and were lucky enough to observe a turlough lake.  On Saturday, we walked the Cliffs of Moher from Liscannor to Doolin in glorious weather.  Sunday’s weather looked less than promising, but it all cleared enough for us to climb Mullaghmore.

 

Wednesday Evening 28 August 2019: Old Head of Kinsale

Eight walkers enjoyed this very pleasant route – the last of the summer evening walks for this year.  Our walk took us from the Garrylucas car park out as far as the Signal Tower on the western track, then back via the eastern track, as far as a laneway, which brought us full circle back to Garrylucas.  It was just beginning to get dark as we drove back to Cork.

No photos.

Sunday 25 August 2019: Mangerton via Punch Bowl

There were six walkers on this route too.  We went as far as the Punch Bowl.  The mist came in heavy, so did not continue to top.  The day was pleasant, though hot and humid.  All up and down safely.
