About us

Cedars Walkers are led by a group of trained and experienced walk leaders under the umbrella of the Jethro Centre in Lurgan.

It is a cross-community group and its members are generally in the 55+ age group. One of our most active walkers is over 80!

Another perfect day for walking.

Slieve Lough Shannagh and Ben Crom - 23 May 2019

Three exceptional walks on a perfect day for walking. Everyone was able to tick off at least one peak during the day. To view some pics of the walk from Ott Track to Happy Valley via Slieve Lough Shannagh and round or over Meelbeg (708m) click on button below:

Meanwhile Mike led an exhilerating 8 mile trek to Ben Crom. Clearly a great time was had by all.

Blue Lough - 16 May 2019

As promised it was another perfect day for walking from Carrick Little Café. More about walks and some more pics if and when time permits. If any Cedars members would be interested in helping with the web site please talk to John T.

Slieve Binnian - 16 May 2019

Cedars walkers meet weekly on Thursdays and try to provide a range of walks to suit the varied wishes of our members. Most of our mountain walks are in the Mournes but we also like to walk in the Cooleys, Sperrins and Antrim Hills. Locations for our "level" walks include forests, public parks, tow paths and National Trust property such as Castle Ward.


Application forms can be obtained from the Jethro Centre, Lurgan. There is a long waiting list of people wishing to join. We would welcome applications from individuals with walk leader qualifications or suitable experience.
