A Walk In The Mournes – Sat 21 June

Our Walk in the Mournes to Slieve Binnian on Sat 21 June in memory of Mickey Mitchell (RIP) is attracting a lot of interest from players, members and friends of Collegeland. The full walk is about 7 miles taking around 3.5 to 4 hours but you can do a part of it and still enjoy the views and scenery. A number of families are going. Entry fee is at £10 and the bus will cost £5. Another £5 for the BBQ back at the Club afterwards. The bus will be leaving the Clubrooms at 9.30am sharp and should be back in Collegeland around 5pm. As the bus is nearly full a good number of people are traveling in cars also.
Bring strong shoes or walking boots, – not new as that might give you blisters, good fitting socks, waterproof clothing, a hat, sun cream, a few plasters, bottles of water and some snacks and please take all rubbish home.
Walkers will be back at the Clubrooms for the BBQ around 5pm, in time to watch World Cup and any featured GAA Qualifier games and some music. If you are not going on the Walk then come along to the early evening BBQ at the Clubrooms, only £5. Monies raised will go towards the new scoreboard. The significance of this event is that almost a year ago Mickey Mitchell climbed Croagh Patrick in Co Mayo on Reek Sunday in July. Over recent years he had been the scoreboard operator as well as doing match reports and serving as County Board Rep. Over many years he had held every Committee post and and had served the Club and Collegeland community in the lean as well as as the better years. A plaque to mark Michael (Mickeys) Mitchell’s contribution to Collegeland O’Rahillys GAC will be placed in the Clubrooms.
