NUIG Mountaineering Club

NUIGMC has been in existence since 1970, which makes it one of the oldest mountaineering clubs in Ireland (a.k.a UCGMC until 1998). The club is one of the most popular in the college, and is currently one of the biggest with a membership of over 1000 people.

Every year the club organises the Maamturks Challenge, one of the toughest challenge walks in the country, for members of the public. The event is run by volunteer students on a non profit basis and is part of the club's legacy and tradition.
