A Walk Change 3rd Oct

The A walk for 3rd October will park at the end of the walk at Ballynultagh Gap (CP at the bottom of Black Hill), rather than the start in Ballyknockan as indicated in the program.  The car pooling meeting place is Blessington as shown in the program. There will be a minibus back to the start.

Change to Evening Walk 10th June

The walk begins at 7.30.   Venue is Briarwood housing Estate, Bray. 

The meeting point is at a housing estate called Briarwood. This is situated beyond the top of the Vevay Road, very close to the Boghall Road and also to the roundabout situated at the Greystones end of the Southern Cross Road. This roundabout gives options to go to Greystones via Windgates. 

Basically Briarwood is on the lefthandside as you leave Bray and head for Greystones and lies between Southern Cross and Boghall Roads. 

Another landmark almost opposite Briarwood is the old Dell site.

There is parking available at Briarwood : as you enter the estate, immediately turn left and there are a few spaces there.  There is plenty more parking within the estate itself. 

The walk does not require boots but it would be easier to have them. There is a gentle ascent and a good deal of flat walking. 

It is a grade C and will last no longer than 90 minutes.
