Having chosen July for our first walk, we may have hoped for summer. The brave band set off from The Sheep’s Head Pub , having consumed some freshly cooked scones, washed down with tea or coffee. No hard stuff for this group of walkers. the walkers were: Josie Heffernan, Niall Gilmore, John Kearney, Declan Hurley, Kathleen Harrington, Norma Harrington, JimmyTobin and Robert Fennell.
Well we left in mist, guided by Jimmy Tobin, of round Ireland walking fame. Up towards Clashadoo, and on to the ridge to join the Sheep’s Head Way, we talked of Tom Whitty as we made it to the top of the ridge. Turning East we headed on with some passing showers
to remind us the views of Bantry bay are better from a height.
Back through Coomkeen, and on into the heaviest rain of the day. Then we turned at the bridge, and the sun came out, as we returned to have our lunch prepared by Pat Flynn and his staff at the Sheep’s Head Pub.
When is the next walk I hear you say ?
