The club member’s annual clay shoot will be held on the 24th October next.

On September 27th Declan Leonard introduced the Ramblers to a walk at The Downs near Mullingar that was new even to residents of the town. The warm sunny weather was perfect for the walk west from Mary Lynch’s pub beside the N4, out through Heathstown bog and back along the Royal Canal. Thank you to Declan for leading the walk and to John Moriarty of Mary Lynch’s for the refreshments at the end of the afternoon.
