Mon 30th Jan.  A total of 367 walkers took part in the Glen of Aherlow Winter Walking Festival this weekend. A special word of thanks to Liz and David for being more than professional over the radio while dealing with an emergency on the mountain and providing us with precise and accurate radio messages. Full marks to Peig for again taking our old battered trekking camera and capturing those magic moments. It was great to link up with old friends again.
