Hi. This is a free group for anybody interested in hiking around the Wicklow Mountains. We meet most weekends. It is a friendly supportive group. The hikes will be moderate and a reasonable level of fitness is required. " now that the the winter weather is upon us, the risk of getting cold on the mountains and developing hypothermia is very high if a hiker has not the correct gear or enough warm clothing. Every hiker should have the following items at all times: a wool hat, scarf, waterproof gloves, waterproof, gortex type jacket and waterproof trousers and ankle support boots. As a hiker becoming unwell on the mountains poses a risk not only to themselves and to others, the hike leader has the right to refuse any person who has not got clothing suitable for winter hikes".
