Kilmallock Trip 4th, 5th, 6th Oct 2019

The Ramblers are planning great walks in the Ballyhoura  area of Limerick in early October. The local community on the Limerick / Cork border have developed wonderful trails in this area. We will be staying at the Deebert Hotel in Kilmallock and all Ramblers who are interested should contact Siun, our Sec  before end of June.


Planning Meeting


A club meeting to plan our walks and trips for the Spring and Summer 2019 will take place in Loughrea Hotel at 8pm on 16th Jan.

Sarsfield Route

On 7th Oct the Ramblers are on a memorial walk near Woodford. The Ramblers will remember the late Dermot Moran RIP who with great local knowledge and information led us on this walk and showed wonderful enthuasism for his local community and history. The route is 15km over some bog and tracks.



Our AGM is on Tuesday 18th September 2018 in the Loughrea Hotel at 8 o’clock.  The club is going from strength to strength with membership increasing every year.  Therefore it is important for all members to attend so that the scheduled walks reflect their preferences and abilities.
