A Big Thank You to the Backpackers who walked the Ballycotton Charity Cliff walk on Sunday & for your generous sponsorship to the Chernobyl Children’s Fund.
Thanks also to Everybody who gave so generously to the Chernobyl Children’s Fund despite not being free to walk on the day.
The Club raised €580 for the Chernobyl Children’s Fund which was presented to Heather Aherne, one of the organisers, before the walk on Sunday morning.
We had a great day.
The weather was favourable with a light breeze to help us along and it stayed dry for most of the walk.
After the Cliff Walk
Hot soup & sandwiches went down well after the walk at an Puc Ar Buile Pub in Ballinrostig.
The Cliff Walk is from Ballycotton village to Ballyandreen beach along a cliff track. On one side you are flanked by meadows and the ocean on the other. It starts at the end of Ballycotton village (at the y in the road take the right up the hill, the left takes you to the pier). The walk extends over 5 miles on track along the cliff face with stunning views and passes Ballytrasna beach. There are many stiles to cross on the route (so not suitable for bikes or buggies).
