The group will leave Jethro Centre, Lurgan punctually at 9:30am on morning of walks (previously 10:00am). Where possible the start point for walks and estimated time of departure on walk will be "broadcast" beforehand via email, text and the web site. If you are going directly to start of walks make sure to check beforehand to confirm the rendezvous point and car share as much as possible, not only to save the planet but also because parking can be limited.
Walking is one of the safest outdoor activities but, as with any outdoors activities, it is not without risk and the risk increases as the grade of walks and the severity of the weather increases. Make sure you understand how walks are graded. The following advice should help minimise risk without compromising enjoyment.
Personal Gear & Equipment
Ever been out in the mountains and unable to get a phone signal? What would you do if an emergency occurred and you needed to summon help? Clicking on the picture (right) will take you to a YouTube video that explains how to use your mobile phone in emergencies and, perhaps more importantly, how to register you phone so that you are able to text your location and details of the incident / casualty to the emergency services if it proves impossible to make voice contact.
Even if you read nothing else on this page, you should watch this video; it may help save a life.

We will leave Jethro Centre on the morning of walks at 10:00am unless otherwise agreed. Planned walks may change right up to the last minute. If travelling directly to the start point sign up for John's text messaging service to stay up to date.
