Group Title: Walking Group Hill Walking
Group Leader: Mervyn Smyth
Group Description/td> The Hill Walking Group usually walk in the Mourne Mountains. On occassions we have traveled to Slieve Gullion or the Coley Mountains in Co Louth. Our walks are usually over rough terrain and last for five or six hours, so they require a reasonable degree of physical fitness and suitable clothing and footwear to cope with changing weather conditions. We go out for good healthy exercise, wondeful views and good chat. We also exchange information about Flora and Fauna and social history of the area and solve all sorts of local and global problems.
Group Status: There are places available for U3A members and friends but the group leader accepts no responsibility for any injury. Safety is a communal responsibility as is enjoyment.
Venue: Mostly in the Mournes
Frequency: We go out every month of the year. At each walk we try to select the next date which suits most people but we are flexible about dates because of thepotential influence of bad weather.
Duration: Depends on walk location/td>
Start Date: All year round
End Date: All year round
