Once again Bobby Buckley has kindly agreed to host this year's walking extravaganza and this time he is taking us to the lowlands of County Kildare.

We meet on Sunday 28th in Maynooth of all places at the car park next to The Roost Pub at 10am for a 10.30 bus departure to destination unknown. I am told this will be a "historical walk" with gentle gradients suitable for the young & old, agile & infirm, mentally sound & completely senile.

We will visit historical country estates, magnificent stately homes, the banks of gently flowing rivers, the grassy towpaths along canal banks & some of the finest agricultural land in Ireland. To quote Bobby's words " a day of wonder & joy awaits us".

Greetings All, this year's Wine 'n Choc O is back in Knocksink Woods, just outside Enniskerry @2pm on Sunday 13th December. Given the limited amount of parking at the forest entrance it is probably best to park down at the bottom of Bog Meadow and walk up from there. There will be lots of goodies for both adults and children with controls over flowing with delights and goodies, so come along and enjoy this most festive of O events.
