Our next walk is on Saturday July 23rd to Croaghanirwore in the Bluestacks Mountains in County Donegal. This ramble will be around 8 miles long and there will be some rough walking terrain. The Walk Co Ordinator recommends bringing Dihydrogen Oxide !!!

On Sunday June 17 thirteen members of West Tyrone Ramblers travelled from Omagh to Sperrin via Plumbridge. Having parked near the entrance to Glenlark Forest the group set off along the forest path in a south westerly direction. After a few miles we entered the hill and continued for another few miles along the foothills of Quiggy Hill . We reached a laneway which brought us past a farmhouse and onto Glencullin road. After about half a mile we stopped at a bridge which crosses Glenlark river to enjoy lunch in the beautiful sunshine on the riverbank. While we admired the beautiful scenery and the many ruins which once were homesteads we learned that in the census of 1901 Glenlark had 181 residents who occupied 36 households. In 2008 however only three houses in the Glen were inhabited. After lunch we walked a short distance along the road before we rejoined the forest path which brought us back to where we had started out- a total of 10.5 miles! It was a pleasant way to spend a glorious sunny Sunday afternoon.
