BOHERQUILL RAMBLERS: - The Ramblers walked the trails of Derrycassin Forest on Sunday 27 January 2019 and in several places they had to clamber over trees which had blown down in the storm the previous night. The weather on Sunday was calm though, with bright sunshine filtering through the trees and reflecting off the surface of Lough Gowna.
On Sunday 10 February 2019 the Ramblers will visit another forest: Newcastle Forest near Ballymahon. Cars will leave Boherquill at 1.30pm and meet at 2pm in the car park beside the bridge in the forest for a loop walk through the forest outside the Centre Parcs resort.
