Sunday 26th September 2021 We try to have a mix of walks hill, mountain and coastal. Coastal walks are generally easier without much climbing.

Seamus Doohan is now the NWMC VTO.
We had a lovely walk in the hills coordinated by Dennis Golden, starting near the waterfall at Maghery outside Ardara and finishing a few kilometres down the road from the waterfall – a good hill-walk after the NWMC AGM in Highlands Hotel Glenties. Report – James Finnegan

Bluestacks Horseshoe – Glascarn Hill to Lavagh More – very sunny, blue skies and streaks of snow on some tops – great day. Thirteen walkers – three eventually finishing over Lavagh More – Helen O, Livinia F, and James F – walk led by James F.
Walk in the Aghlas was led by James Finnegan who disappeared after Crocknalaragagh. All fifteen walkers made it back safely on a windy day and in daylight. James is the only person who did Aghla More on the day but there was no prize given for that. Some say he is lucky to be alive.
