“Ardara Hillwalkers” become “Walk on the Wild Side”

Due to Ardara Hillwalkers being misinterpreted as a walking club rather than a provider of professionally guided hikes, they are changing their name to “Walk on the Wild Side”.Walk on the Wild Side will be kicking off the new walking year with the Ardara Walking Festival on the 14th and 15th March.Details of walks coming soon, but if anyone is interested in a hike, and in the Donegal vicinity, please feel free to contact us.Looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year! 

Thanks to Terence

The full lighting programme was initiated by Terence Slowey when he was Councillor has now been completed and anyone on the Narin Road will appreciate the new lighting. Over the last five years Terence, as Councillor, secured over €70,000.00 under the MDF Programme to light up Kentucky and the Narin Road. 46 lights have been installed and we just want to say thanks Terence.
