The summer hillwalk took us up to Cruachán in the Comeraghs, just north of Dungarvan. After meeting to car-pool, we were all assembled, counted and given our “marching orders” by Clare Shelley, before heading for the hills, ably led by Veronica Curran.
It was a hot day! The tecchies among us recorded 27C at the base, and 19C at the summit. Plenty of water and frequent rests were essential, as was liberal application of sunblock. But the views were worth the hard work. Veronica pointed out An Fear Bréige and an older telecommunications mast on the distant hills. From the top of Cruachán we had a 360 degree view of the surrounding hills and coastline.
Our choir have recently returned from a very successful and enjoyable trip to San Marino! Don’t they look swell in those summer outfits? A picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures can’t capture the beautiful music, but we know they did us proud!
