Comórtas Peil na Gaeltachta 2010

The annual Gaelic Football competition for teams from Gaeltacht areas rumbles into Belmullet this coming weekend. With it come a lot of footballers and football followers. The craic should be good.

An Clár Oifigiúil is here, if you’d like to take a look : Clár Oifigiúil

As part of what you might call the “off festival”, I will be leading walks on both Saturday and Sunday. So come along, if you fancy a stroll. Good comfortable runners will suffice for both walks, but, as always, I would advise hiking boots anyway.

Saturday :

Erris Head / Ceann Iorrais. Meet at the small carpark at Glenlara / An Gleann Lara, at 11 am. This beautiful cliff-top walk is around 2 – 3 hours and entirely off-road.

Sunday :

Aughleam & Falmore / Each Léim agus An Fáil Mhór. Meet at the graveyard in Falmore, at 12 midday. This walk is mostly on-road, but quiet roads they are certainly. Various possible loops allow you to leave when you like. The maximum length, should you join for the walk’s entirety, will be around 3 hours.

Hopefully, we’ll have the weather.

    We had beautiful weather today for Erris Head. Looking forward to tomorrow – weather is promised good again.
    On the Comórtas, I saw a good Cill tSeidhin senior team today in sun-drenched weather. Fabulous facilities at the new CLG Béal an Mhuirthead grounds.
