Are you interested in walking/hillwalking. If so the following may be of interest to you. Starting Tuesday evening, 15th April there will be a series of low level/hill walks over the summer months. This programme will mirror the long running and successful “Tuesday evening walkers” organised and led some years ago in the Dublin/Wicklow area. With sturdy boots and a reasonable level of fitness these walks may suit you. Walks are planned for the general Shannonside area and will be for 2 to 4 hours duration.

Deepest sympathy is extended to Veronica Gorman, Clondra on the death of her mother, Vera Lynch, Rathfarnom, Dublin which occurred last week at the residence of her daughter Veronica. The late Vera who was in her 88th year had being living in Clondra for the past 16 years and will be sadly missed by Veronica and Brian, grandsons Luke, John, Alex and Cregg, extended family members and neighbours. May she RIP.

Successful canal walk

On Sunday last, 14 enthusiastic walkers set out on the trail from Richmond Harbour along the canal line past the 45th lock railway bridge, Begna Bridge and continuing on to Ballydrum bridge, turning back down by the canal on to Killashee road finishing up in Clondra village. The walk was very enjoyable as weather conditions were ideal and good dry ground underfoot. Thanks to Des and the Richmond Inn for the lovely refreshments following the walk. Thanks also to everyone who sponsored the walkers. Proceeds go towards organising events for the Clondra harbour festival which will take place the June Bank holiday weekend. More details later about up coming events.

Table quiz
