Hello and welcome to February’s Newsletter!
The year started off in style with a New Year’s Day kayak out on Mulroy Bay, this was the second year of it and it looks like it could be becoming an annual tradition! Then on the first weekend of the year a group of hardy young boys experienced the excitement of rock climbing out at Cruit Island for a rather adventurous 10th birthday party!
Monday 20th January was supposed to be blue Monday – supposedly the most depressing day of the year, so working together with Wholegreen the idea came about to reclaim this day and beat the blues by organising Green Sunday! The plan was to watch the sunrise from the top Errigal, and what a sun rise it was! The photos taken that morning were truly spectacular and can’t really do justice to the colours and views that were experienced by all, we definitely beat those Monday blues!
So thanks to everyone who came out and joined us that day, we will certainly be doing a few more sunrise hikes.
January also contained a number of firsts for myself personally, I had my first newspaper interview with the Donegal News running an article about the upcoming Full Moon hike and then I had an interview with John Breslin on Highland Radio, if you want to listen back to the interview just click on the link:
