“A” Hillwalks

The A hillwalks are typically 10-15km in length with 800-1500m accumulated ascent and usually last 5-7 hours. Only walkers with sufficient experience (i.e. several B walks or equivalent) are allowed to participate, as a good level of stamina is required and the terrain can be challenging. It is club policy not to allow visitors on A hillwalks.

All hillwalkers are advised to look at the Safety Guidelines and Gear List pages; proper clothing and boots are mandatory.

The A hillwalk organiser is John O’Sullivan Email: john@dvp.ie  Mobile: 087-1167559.

Meeting point: Our meeting point is the IMC Cinema (Omniplex) on the Headford Road at 8.45am, depart @ 9.00am always check the website for start times, or last minute changes due to weather and other conditions prior to travelling.
