Boherquill Ramblers

During a brief respite from the recent storms, the weather was almost like spring when the Ramblers visited Newcastle Forest on Sunday February 2nd. The Inny River was very high and fast-moving beside the car park at the start of the walk and there were flooded areas in many nearby fields but the trails in the forest were only muddy in places. During their walk, and later back in the car park for tea and biscuits, the Ramblers encountered several families and small groups out in the forest making the most of the fine weather.

Oliver Usher will lead the Ramblers on their annual ‘Snowdrop Walk’ in Drewstown on Sunday February 16th. Cars will leave Boherquill at 1.30pm and will pause at the church in Clonmellon at 2pm before moving on to meet at Drewstown House at 2.15pm. Anyone who would like to join the Ramblers trip to Strangford for the St. Patrick’s weekend is asked to contact Brian Nerney on 086 2596656 immediately to ascertain numbers.
