Publicity and other materials received
The following have sent me material and publicity. If anyone would like the full package of information I will gladly forward it (even more gladly if the request is made with a view to organising a club trip).
Atlastravel.ie do trips from Dublin to Kerry on selected weekends including one night stay in Killarney and a guided climb of Carrauntoohill and return Coach trip for €150.
Kevin Heery organises walking holidays in the Picos de Europa and attached examples of the types of week-long & short break tours. He will tailor dates & structures to suit any particular brief & type of walking.
Tony Conneely has just taken ownership of The Maol Reidh Hotel in Tullycross on the Renvyle peninsula in north west Connemara and included a number of midweek and weekend special offers for March (to be booked before 15 Feb).
For the information of those on the walk last Sunday, the ring found near the summit of Seefin belonged to a racing pigeon. The computerised records don't go back as far as 2003 but probably a hawk killed the pigeon.
