An Gasice Adventure Journey

As part of the An Gaisce Bronze Award Aideen and Steve brought a group of trainees on an adventure journey on Monday 12th July.  They climbed Truskmore (15.430 km / 9.64 miles), cycled (7.780 / 4.86 miles) and stayed in Benwisken Youth Hostel. The trainees had to plan, train for and complete this outdoor Adventure Journey as part of a team.  This was a unique, enjoyable and memorable experience, as well as an opportunity to experience self-sufficiency.  It was a beautiful day too! Thanks to Barry and William from North West Adventure for their guidance.
