KILLEAGH HEALTHY CLUBS – KILLEAGH GAA CLUB, KILLEAGH/ITAS JUVENILE CLUB, KILLEAGH CAMOGIE CLUB & INCH ROVERS LADIES FOOTBALL CLUB

One of the aspects of the Healthy Clubs Initiative in Killeagh is our walking group. The walks vary hugely and are suitable for all fitness levels. We have had some great family outings including walking the Atlantic Pond (Mahon, Cork), Glenbower Woods, Beach walks and more recently Spike Island. Lots of the walks are local and we have had very pleasant trips to Lismore, Knockadoon Cliff Walk and a historic walk of Cork City followed by breakfast. 

Our most challenging walks were climbing Carrauntoohill, Galtee Mór, and a group of 30 travelled to Spain to complete a section of the Camino de Santiago. New members are always welcome, if you are interested in joining, please contact Liz Sinclair 087-6137393!

Our next walk takes place next Sunday 22nd December as the Killeagh Healthy Clubs project walk No. 47 heads from Blackrock Castle at 10am, heading for Mahon & Passage. If you are interested, please text Liz Sinclair on 087-6137393. All are welcome.
