Roscrea Trail Blazers try new walk near Cloughjordan

Roscrea Trail Blazers on The Scohaboy Bog/Sopwell wood walk near Cloughjordan

On Thursday night last the Trail Blazers were on a new walk near Cloughjordan, the Scohaboy Bog/Sopwell wood walk. This walk has just been officially opened and I would encourage everyone to go and see this area at least once and enjoy what the area has to offer.
This Thursday we are at Terryglass on the banks of the Shannon for a 6km hike around the back roads of Terryglass. The walk will be led by local woman Geraldine Caufield who has just returned from a Temple pilgrimage in Japan and we will get a chance to hear all about it with tea and coffee after the walk. This is a short flat walk and is suitable for everyone and one not to be missed. Meeting at Mulrooneys Gala at 7pm or Terryglass village at 7.30pm.
There are still limited places available for our week long holiday at Lake Windermere, The Lake District. Please contact Cathal on 086 3399193 for the itinerary and more details.
Now that the evenings have begun to open up more, we are back to walking further from home. This is still a great way to keep fit over the coming months.
The Trail Blazers would like to put out an open invitation to the general public to join them at some point on their walks programme for the start of 2019. Walking is a great way to get into shape as well as being a great way to meet new friends and see new places. The Trail Blazers website www.roscreatrailblazers.com is up and running and you are welcome to take a look and see what the club has planned. If you would like to join the group on any of their walks you can contact Cathal on 086 3399193 with an expression of interest. You will be made very welcome.
