Courtown Woods Walk

Well done once again to all those who travelled up to Courtown Woods today on a frosty January morning.

The sun shone as the Club met in the car park of the Leisure Centre before rambling around the beautiful Courtown Woods.

Although the going got a bit mucky that didn’t seem to deter the club as they traversed along the river and passed the old mill.

Afterwards we all enjoyed some time visiting the Irish Seal Sanctuary.

Mid Week Walks: (beginners walk)

The Wexford Bus Premises at Redmond Sq., is the place to be at 7pm on Wednesday next 12th January 2011.  Pauline Doyle is the walk leader.
