Walking Trips

NYC Walking Group

The NYC Walking Group will recommence it’s walking programme on Sunday 4th September.

We walk on the first Sunday of each month from September to April.

Update on NYC St. Patrick’s Day Walk

Fourteen of us met in the Club for coffee and set out for town at 11am. Although we did not take part in the official walk, we collected €130 and handed it in to the Aware registration tent. I will pin the receipt on the Club notice board on Wednesday.

NYC St Patrick’s Day walk March 17th

Meeting @ NYC – 10.15am

Some fifteen of us met in the Club last Patrick’s day and walked into town to Charlotte Quay where we stopped for lunch.

I propose we repeat the outing this year and meet in the Club for coffee at 10.15 for a prompt 11am start.

I think last year’s charity was the RNLI, and whilst we did not formally register, we took up our own private collection which Kevin passed on to them. I suggest we operate the same informal arrangement this year and not register.

I hope you will be able to attend and I look forward to seeing you then.


NYC Sunday Walk 7th February

Next Sunday’s walk (7th Feb.) is a circuit of the inside perimeter of UCD with a coffee break in the Swimming Pool Complex, about half way (No need to bring a picnic).

This is a mainly flat, gritted pathway of about 6.5kms which, with an half hour break, should have us back at the cars well before 5pm. Stout walking shoes should suffice.

Time:- Meet at 1.50pm for a prompt 2pm start.

Directions:- Travelling south on the N11 turn right at Fosters Avenue opposite the Radisson Hotel (St Thomas Church on corner). A short distance later turn into the UCD Nova entrance on RHS.


Walking Group Outing 6th Dec Update

On Sunday 6th December, NYC Walking Group had it’s last walk of the year.  Last Sunday was a beautiful day and eleven Club members turned up for our walk around Dalkey and Killiney Head and back to the Club afterwards for tea. Despite it being the annual Childrens’ Christmas Santa party day, Marius and Adrian pulled out all the stops and served us scrumptious tea/coffee and scones. Great thanks are due to Tim, Louise and all the staff for their sterling efforts on the busiest day of the year.

Keep an eye on the website for our 2016 walking programme, which will be out soon.
