Walkers Energy Bar

The original link to this recipe was changed some time ago so I'm re-posting this item with the latest link.

Recipe requested by B Walker testers after our Glendalough walk on 20th November 2010. I made this recipe having watched the River Cottage programme on Channel 4, I actually doubled the recipe and made a large tray of the bars. Incidentally it keeps well in an airtight tin. Their website reference explains it much better than I could. Enjoy, Rhoda

32 County Highest Points

What a lovely idea for the CHA, I thought.  Climb all the highest points in each of the counties in Ireland.  It crosses all borders, it covers all corners of Ireland, it covers all grades of walks and it would appeal to like-minded people – members of the CHA - people who like to walk in the countryside.  What fun!
Map of highest peaks in 32 counties
26 pins in the map due to proximity of Sligo & Leitrim
There is a list of 27 hill tops, as there are some counties that share the same summit e.g. Mount Leinster is in both Co Carlow and Co Wexford.  The A Walkers will endeavour to climb the 27 tops over 2/3 years as some of the walks will require an overnight stay.  Hopefully members who are familiar with a county might take on the challenge of leading a walk in that county.  All grades of CHA walkers are invited to use this list to participate in either organising or leading a walk within their grade.
It is all for a bit of fun and adventure.  Everyone likes to try something new and hopefully this will add some new challenging and interesting walks to the CHA repertoire.
List of 32 CHP plus progress sheet available on the members section of the CHA website.

New Walks Card Online

The walks card for September to December 2012 in now available online in two formats, as on the walks card and also listed grouped by walks grade. This information is only available to club members who have also signed up for website membership.

I have visually checked this version against the printed card but I would be very happy to correct any errors. I am also happy to keep this up to date if changes are made to published walks.
