Jolly Joggers:
New Years Day Run HERE Presentation of funding HERE
Stairway to Heaven: Ten members of the Jolly Joggers headed off to the Cuilcagh mountains on the Cavan/Fermanagh border on Saturday, June 29th so that they would climb the ‘Stairway To Heaven’. This facility was built in order to preserve the boglands and natural habitat of the mountains, which was being used by thousands of walkers every year. At 665 metres above sea level, Cuilcagh is the highest mountain point in this part of Ireland and appeals to those with some experience of walking in the hills. Climbing to the summit involves a 14.8 km round trip from Legnabrocky car park, and this route is quite isolated and showcases the scenic wilderness of the mountain, which has the famous Marble Arch Caves at the bottom. The stepped boardwalk is 1.6 km in length and is located at the end of a 5.8 km limestone gravel track. The full trail takes about six hours to complete but the views from the boardwalk are very scenic and breath-taking. The ladies successfully completed the climb and were presented with medals by leader Geraldine McAree. They then returned to the Squealing Pig in Monaghan for replenishing food. Well done girls.
There was a celebration for Pauline’s birthday when they got back to the bottom of the climb and refreshments and cake were enjoyed by all. Happy Birthday Pauline.
