Meeting points

Please be aware that a number of our regular service stations have rebranded. Our Killarney meeting point has moved from Topaz to Circle K to Applegreen. Its the one on the Killarney bypass on the same roundabout as Lidl - also known as the Reeks Service Station. Please double check with the walk leader if in doubt. Walk leaders can you let me know if the Service Station for you walk has rebranded. Thanks
