Hi my name is Lana. I am in my second year of UCC studying Economics and Spanish. I joined the mountaineering club last year and decided to get more involved by becoming secretary of the club this year. I’m from Galway originally, so joining the club on Sunday hikes was a way to pass time during the weekends in Cork. Hiking is great fun (don’t listen to what the climbers say about it) and I have made many great friends – I would highly recommend it to everyone! I also climb regularly with the club during the week at the Maradyke, and occasionally outdoors when the weather allows. I can’t wait for the club trips this year and I hope to see you all there!
