The Millstreet Autumn Walking festival was held on Saturday 24th Sept 2011. Weather on the day was more or less ideal for walking. There was great local and external interest and participation in the three walks listed below:
The O’Sullivan Beara March. “A” Walk (strenuous).
The Claragh Loop. “B” Walk (moderate).
The Mountleader Trail. “C” Walk (easy).
All walks were guided and €5.00 per person or €10.00 per family was charged on registration at base camp: The Wallis Arms Hotel.
The very genuine wholehearted positive response given by many of the participants of the Autumn walking festival was so encouraging that future such events can be envisaged and further enhanced. This event was organized by MDG, Tourism/Walking Committee in association with Millstreet Tidy Town.
