Description

This year we have the pleasure of The Wayfarers Hiking Club, one of our larger long-established clubs to host this year’s Gathering in conjunction with their 50th Anniversary. The gathering will be based out of The Avon which is ideally situated in Blessington, Co Wicklow situated on the shores of Blessington Lakes and beside the Wicklow Mountains. The Wicklow Mountains form the largest continuous upland area in the Republic of Ireland. They occupy the whole centre of County Wicklow and stretch outside its borders into the counties of Dublin, Wexford and Carlow providing wide ranging and challenging walking routes to suit all abilities. The accommodation is based from the lodges with breakfast served in the main function area. The Avon also provides meeting room space as well as a large dining area for the Saturday night dinner. Please let the hotel know you are with the Mountaineering Ireland Gathering at the time of booking accommodation to avail of this special rate. Rooms are booking out fast so be sure to book early.

The weekend will start with registration from 6.30pm in the lobby area of the Avon. The welcome talk will take place from 8.00pm. Saturday, sees a full programme of activities including walks in and around the Wicklow Mountains. The Mountaineering Ireland AGM will take place at The Avon with AGM registration from 5.30pm. There will be refreshments offered beforehand. The Members’ Forum, like the AGM, is for all members and will take place immediately after our AGM. The Members’ Forum is a key part of Mountaineering Ireland’s democratic process where clubs and members can put forward items to be discussed, and this is often the catalyst for further examination or for a campaign or action to be launched. All members are encouraged to attend this forum and you are invited to submit items for discussion by email to info@mountaineering.ie.Saturday evening finishes off with a dinner in the hotel itself.

Sunday morning will have a variety of workshops commencing at 10:00. Again, please book your choice of workshop online as places are limited.

We hope to see you there!
