A few safety reminders:

Walk on the Wild SideGood hiking gear essential on both days as ye know weather can be a little changeable on the hills. Spare warm clothes are a great idea.Please bring a flask, ample food and water for the day.Let leaders know of any need-to-know ailments. Discretion guaranteed.Be aware it’s lambing season and not to startle sheep. No dogs on either day, sorry.Be aware of your capabilities. More difficult walks are aimed at more experienced hikers. The walk on Sunday is not a long walk but if weather permits it will be a little challenging.Safety will come first so please don’t be offended if we have to make the call.Looking forward to seeing you all. Lets have FUN!The weekend programme is available on the Ardara Walking Festival page.Ardara Walking Festival 

St. Patrick’s Parade

The Ardara St. Patrick’s Parade takes place on Sunday 15th March at 2.30pm.The Parade is now in its 33rd year and it has, over the years, been an outstanding event enjoyed by all.In recent years we have found it difficult to get people to put in floats which are essential to ensure the event is successful. We are pleading with you to help in any way to get a float in this year. Without the floats the parade will not be a success.For more info and to enter a float contact Margaret on 087 2023033. ARDARA WEATHER
