First of all I would like to thank you all for turning up for the BBQ last Tuesday. I hope you enjoyed it, and a special thanks to Martin Dunne for making it possible for us to use the community centre in Glenasmole, and thanks to Carl, Sarah, Des and Jon for all the help. This Tuesday we are going to Hell and back. Put your walking boots on as we are going up to the Hell Fire Club for some great views looking over Dublin. Meet in Molloy’s carpark (outside the Taxi office in the carpark) – we’re leaving at 7.30pm sharp, so please be early and don’t forget your cameras! Looking forward to seeing you there! Or you can make your own way out.
