Walkers 3rd Birthday

Member Jimmy Lyons decided that active retirement should be just that, with this in mind he started us walking. A committee was formed and permission was sought and granted to use Pearses G.A.A. sports grounds.
The use of these facilities ensured that the project would succeed, the clubhouse could be used in wet weather which gave the venture continuity. Warm up,warm down became became common place jargon with the silver haired walkers. Toilets and tea making facilities ensured a lively and informative discussion ensued after the walk.
During the summer months the walkers would go on tour, visits were made to other areas either by train or car, this has proved very popular as it involves both travel and sampling the local cousine.
This activity has proved to be one of the most valuable, constant and well attended activity of the association.
Thanks once again to Jimmy who straight away formed an excellent committee and involved everybody with this healthy and communal project.
