Hikes List 2014
First Hike of the year is Lough Coumshingaun in the Comeraghs, Co.Waterford. It’s on Sunday and we’ll be meeting at 8:20 am at Gaol Cross by Castlewhite. The bus costs €7 and we should have 2 buses but numbers will probably be significant so it would be best to come early. It is an ideal hike for beginners.
We would strongly advise people to wear proper hiking boots, but we will accept runners for the first few hikes. Avoid wearing jeans or any form of denim as these get very heavy and uncomfortable when wet. Also being Ireland it rains quite a bit, so please bring a waterproof jacket and rain pants if you have them. You also need a packed lunch, a warm top/fleece and at least a litre of water. One more thing…bring a complete change of clothes for after, i.e. socks, pants, shoes etc. to be left on the bus. You’ll be very glad of these when we get off the hill!
UCC students only on these hikes! Please bring student IDs, we cannot bring non UCC students for insurance reasons unfortunately.
We’ll stop in a shop on the way down if anyone needs to get a lunch, and we’ll stop in most likely Youghal on the way home for a bit of food. The following hikes are as follows
28th September – Gougane Barra
