Keel loopwalk.

Posted: January 28, 2015 · By: Dave Elton · Comments: 0

Mountain, track and river. Starting point for tonight's walk. Boolteens. So far this last 7 days has been quite productive. Three good cycles and a family walk. The calender quickly comes around to Tuesday and the latest challenging night walk. This evening saw about 30 of us head back out onto the Dingle Peninsula, all be it the South side of the Slieve Mish Mountains and the Village of Boolteens, near Castlemaine. [...]

Mob handed out in Brosna.

A big contingent head for the Limerick border. Like rabbits popping their heads out into the fresh air after the big bad fox had moved on, we had an unusually big turn out this morning.

Get Kerry Walking in Killarney. Well it's that time of the year again, when the marketeers take time out from pushing calories onto us and it's the turn of the keep fit experts and dieticians to whip us into shape. On the back of the Operation Transformation RTE programme, we entered in to the 3rd "Get Kerry Walking" day in Killarney National Park. [...]

Gently does it for the New Year!

The Jimmy Duffy and some North Kerry Villages. I for one didn't escape the colds and flu plaguing the good citizens of County Kerry this winter, so my New Years cycling and walking exploits got off to a slow start. Throw into the equation the fact that the weather is starting to finally act like winter, motivation is the key here in Ireland at the moment. [...]
