Cappoquin Conquered, next stop Doneraile Tramore !

Waterford Sports Partnership (WSP) hosted the third walk in the Walk Waterford Spring series last Saturday 9th February in Coillte's beautiful Glenshelane Forest near Cappoquin.  Twenty five walkers met the staff and volunteers of WSP and an enjoyable stroll was had by all.  
Glenshelane or Glen of the Fairies boasts a number of walking trails that allow visitors to meander through the beech, oak and ash forest.  Completing this tranquil atmosphere the Glenshelane River running through the middle making it the perfect walking and picnic spot.  If you were unable to make last Saturday's walk make sure to make a point of visiting Glenshelane the next time you are near Cappoquin it’s well worth a visit.

The Walk Waterford programme is designed to showcase the fantastic walking trails in Waterford.  This free programme incorporating a series of five walks is aimed at those looking for a leisure stroll on easy terrain -the type of walk that runners are ideal on.  Everyone is welcome!

The next walk is this coming Saturday 16th February. It will be on the picturesque Doneraile in Tramore. This is one of Waterford’s five Slí na Sláinte routes. It offers majestic views over Tramore Bay as well as interesting heritage sites on route.  It will be an easy walk of 4km and will take approximately 1hour 15 minutes.  It is important to note there is one steep hill at the beginning of the walk (Galweys Hill) which we will be taking our time to conquer! 

We are meeting at 10.45am on Saturday 16th February in the carpark opposite the Majestic Hotel.  Follow the main road into Tramore, the carpark is located on the left hand side, just 1 minute past the roundabout. Walkers need only flat walking shoes; runners are ideal, warm clothing and a waterproof jacket.
