Carrowkeel Hike - Thursday 28th March 2019

Following the hike of Carrowkeel which many of our trainees completed, Aideen received a lovely card from John Paul Ryan (our walk guide) with some fantastic feedback as follows:

“Personally it was a most enjoyable day out. The crew from the CTC were vibrant, engaging and good fun. After three plus hours on the hills, I was sorry to part company with them when it was all over. I only hope that they enjoyed it as much as I, and that maybe on any given Sunday they might have the urge to pull on the boots, grab a bag and head for the hills once again”

Photos of Carowkeel and the surrounding area were taken by Karam from our computer course. Thanks to Karam for sharing them with us.
