Latest Club News from Chairman George Hamill Tel:028 8778 4081/07708 600125Info.from Asst.Sec.David Mullan. Tel: 07710006023Hi Folks, this Sunday 05th July we are away to Donegal to take a hike in the wild north-west in the Bluestack mountains above Donegal Town.Our walk leader will be Brian McGarvey and the start point is just to NW of Lough Eske. It will be a relatively easy 5 hour trek with both A and B groups walking together on the soft grassy hills and climbing to rocky peaks finishing on the highest, Croaghgorm 674m at the site of a WW11 plane crash overlooking the Glenties where an Allied Forces patrol plane, returning in poor weather conditions, hit the mountain en route to Castle Archdale at Lough Erne in Co. Fermanagh in the wee small hours of 1st February 1944, killing 7 out of a crew of 12. No doubt Brian will have researched the history of the area and will keep us entertained with information and stories as the walk progresses.The weather is looking optimistically good for this week with the warm spell expected to last through the weekend so hopefully we will have good conditions and a break for ice-cream.This time the bus will start picking up at Stangmore Dungannon 08.00,STH 08.15 Asda Cookstown 08.30 before heading through Omagh and Kesh to Donegal town. Can those wishing to get the bus, please get in contact by Thursday evening at latest.As usual there will be three sections 1. Humour 2.Scenery 3.People. and a special prize for best overall photo-judging will be by members at A.G.M.A few have already been received,and are on display.-please send your competition photos to me at Web address opposite.
