Nearing the first anniversary of the passing of Eugene Ryan, a group of his friends intend to climb the 12 O’Clock hills on Saturday September 17th, to remember and reminisce.

Eugene completed this climb on 15th September 2021. Anyone who wishes to join them are more than welcome. Assembly at Belvoir Car Park, (Eircode V95 YKN5) at 9.45am, for a 10.00am start with the options of a 5km, 8km or 13km trail.

It is intended to have a bucket collection at the carpark with all proceeds going towards Barretstown, a cause close to Eugene’s heart.

A 4km guided walk will commence at 10.30am where a local guide will talk about the heritage and social history of families who lived here.
