BOHERQUILL RAMBLERS: - The Ramblers trip to Wales over the June Bank Holiday weekend was a great success. On Friday the group checked into their hotels and explored the town of Menai Bridge. On Saturday Liz Gaccon led the group on a walk based on the beautiful village of Beddgelert in Snowdonia. The wonderfully scenic route followed the rocky Aberglaslyn pass beside the Glaslyn river and then a slow climb up Cwm Bychan valley before the descent to Dinas Lake and back to Beddgelert. Sunday's walk was on Anglesey, through Newborough Forest to Llanddwyn, a tidal island of great historical and geological interest. A stretch of beautiful open beach and some more forest brought the day's walk to an end. Monday's walk was in the north of Anglesey, along the cliffs from near South Stack Lighthouse to the beach at Porth Dyfach. The scenery was breathtaking, and the beautiful weather added to the enjoyment. After their walk the Ramblers only had a short journey to catch the ferry home from Holyhead.
The Ramblers would like to thank Liz Gaccon for all her work in organising the trip and leading such superb walks. Thanks also to Goodsir Coaches of Holyhead and their drivers Graham and Sean for transport over the weekend. The comfortable accommodation and good food provided by the Victoria and Anglesey Hotels and the Premier Inn were all greatly appreciated. Finally thank you to Nini Murray, Mary McHugh and Patricia Bruton who handled the sometimes tricky arrangements from here.
On Sunday June 16 the Ramblers will visit Glasson. Cars will leave Boherquill at 1.30pm and meet in Ballymahon at the petrol station on the Athlone road at 2pm before moving on to Glasson village.
New members and new walks are always welcome. For details phone Philip at 087 7753612 or Nini at 086 8754411.
