Even Barack Obama got into the spirit of the West Tyrone Ramblers activities this weekend. Singing Amazing Grace ahead of an elite group of 22 ramblers visiting Amazing Grace Country. Starting off with a visit to Amazing Grace Park in memory of John Newton who in 1748, when a violent storm battered his vessel off the coast of County Donegal, Ireland so severely that he called out to God for mercy, a moment that marked his spiritual conversion. Whilst his boat was being repaired in Lough Swilly, he wrote the first verse of his world famous song.


 Continuing along the Coast the Ramblers made a detour into charming Swan Park before lunch at Father Hegarty's Rock.  All photos on this page from this popular walk in area full of history. Whilst the Creme de la Creme of the West Tyrone Ramblers were enjoying this walk the B group of the club were rumoured to be climbing a wee molehill in the Macgillycuddy's Reeks

The final section of our planned walk for Sunday July 5th was featured this week on BBC. Click here
