•Sunday Walks are held every three weeks throughout the year. ‘A’ walks are longer and harder. ’B’ walks are somewhat easier and more relaxed.•Mid-Ulster Walking Club and Cookstown Council together organise Sperrintrek walks during the year. •We have a long walking weekend in spring (early May). Previous sorties have been to Scotland, Wales, The Lake District, Co. Kerry and the Isle of Arran. •In autumn (October) ,we have another walking weekend. In the past we have been to Achill, Westport, Donegal ,Wicklow and Galloway. •Shorter mid-week (Thursday) walks are held every two weeks. These are usually easier, with an emphasis on enjoying the landscape.•Occasional trips abroad are organised from within the Club. •We organise our own training sessions.2015

David Mullin. Tel: 07710006023Next walk is this Sunday in the Cooleys. There will be A and B walks, with B group, led by Alan Clarke taking the easier path to walk Barnavave, Slieve Foy, Carlingford Mountain and Eagles Rock, returning along the tree-line and descendingthroughCarlingfordvillage.(4-5Hours).The highest peak,Slieve Foye, is 588 metres-only a wee dander up a hill to most of you. However, don't be fooled by lack of altitude as A walk, led by Paul Connolly will cover many different types of terrain including tarmac road, some easy slopes at the start, through bracken cover which get steeper as you ascend, finally ending in a rocky gully which will test even the fittest of mountain goats! Then, when you think you have reached the top, he will lead you down into the White Bog, where some will sink to their necks in muddy holes and may never be seen again. For those who survive this challenge, Connolly will then take you across to ‘Split Rock’, then ‘The Ravens Rock’ and across rivers and tumbling waterfalls- up and down and up and down, until finally you may, or may not end up at ‘The Foxes Rock’ where the remaining few, will turn and headbacktowards‘TheEaglesRock’,climbinguptobeautifulviewsoverCarlingfordLough.(6Hours)Ifthingsgettoughtherewillbeanoptiontoshortenthewalkandcutoutthelast2mountains.For those who wish to use the coach, I will need to hear from you as soon as possible, at least by Thursday,soIcanhavethecorrectbussize.Bus leaving Asda Cookstown 08.00STH Dungannon 08.15Stangmore 08.25SeagoeRoad,Portadown08.50FINALLY, REMEMBER CLOCKS GO FORWARD ON SAT.
