MI Autumn Gathering in Glendalough
16 October 2015 - 18 October 2015
Mountaineering Ireland have welcomed us to join their Autumn Youth Gathering in Glendalough 16th-18th October for a weekend of climbing, bouldering and hiking, etc.
This is a great opportunity for us to go along to meet-greet & climb, boulder/hike with these young mountaineers, who will potentially join our club.

MI Autumn Gathering will be “offering a good range of walks in the Glendalough, Glenmalure and Glendasan areas, most of which will start and finish from the Glendalough hotel itself. The routes will include both well-known walks as well as the opportunity to visit a couple of lesser known spots in the Wicklow mountains. Glendalough is also a popular location for climbing and bouldering and there will be plenty of opportunity to do both over the weekend.
Mountaineering Ireland staff will be delivering two key workshops on Saturday. Helen Lawless, along with Mike Maunsell will run a Club Environmental Officer’s workshop. This workshop, ‘Walking with Wildlife’ accompanies the recently published ‘Walking with Wildlife’ guide to key flora and fauna species in the East of Ireland. In addition, Jane Carney, Training Officer, will run a Club Training Officer’s workshop focusing on in-club training of mountaineering skills and what resources Mountaineering Ireland can offer to facilitate training within clubs. Online registration is available for both workshops.
The MI member’s forum will take place on Sunday morning and clubs are encouraged to send two members to the forum as it is a chance to speak directly to the Board and Staff of Mountaineering Ireland and bring up any local or national topics or concerns.
Bookings are now open and as high numbers are anticipated in Glendalough, we would encourage you to register online and book your preferred walk as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Please click on MI Registration for the event progamme, details of the walks and registration.
We look forward to seeing you in October”
