Carpooling
As a club we encourage carpooling. There are a number of advantages to carpooling.
For environmental reasons less cars means less fuel and less pollution. Also space for car parking can be a challenge on some walks – we don’t want to be blocking gates or tracks that are in use by locals.

If you are interested in car-pooling please let the walk leader know if you are looking or offering. The walk leader can often be helpful in putting people in touch with each other but depending on the walk and who else is going, you will need to be prepared to have your own transport.

We recommend a contribution of €10 to the driver for any of our regular weekend walks.

Walk Grades:
C : up to 4 hours. On tracks paths and quiet roads. Little or no climb.
C+ longer walks that may involve an incline or an easy mountain involving walking on open ground.
B : expect to be out 4-5 hours. Expect a climb and rough open ground. There may be some scrambling and exposure.
B+ can be anything from 5 – 7 hours. Expect a climb and rough open ground. There may be some scrambling and exposure. Details of the exact walk might be light with the walk leader more likely to make changes depending on the group and the day.

New members are always welcome.
