The Board of Mountaineering
Ireland has agreed terms of reference and an initial work plan for a new Hillwalking Committee and is now
seeking applications for membership of the committee. Full details are on our
website: https://www.mountaineering.ie/aboutus/news/2019/?id=197 and
asked us to share this link to all our members and anyone else you think might
be interested in applying. This is a
major opportunity to contribute to our national body, put something back into
our sport and to reflect the ethos and interest of our club.
