Blisters Hillwalking Group & Cork City FC are joining forces for a day on Sunday July 30th when we plan to trek to the summit of Corran Tuathail and in doing so we will try to raise some funds Cork City FC’s Youth Programme.
On the day we will carry the FAI Senior Cup to the Summit and be joined by First Team Players in Cronins Yards afterwards.
Blisters have some very experienced guides, most whom are veterans of Everest. It is sure to be a fantastic outing and great fun will be had.
If you are interested in joining us, we will meet in Killarney at 8.15am and travel together to Cronin’s Yard to start around 9.15 am. For over 300 years Cronin’s Yard has been used as the traditional starting point for ascents of Ireland’s highest mountain, Corran Tuathail, situated at the entrance to the Hags Glen at Mealis, Beaufort, this is the gateway to the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.
There are showers available in Cronin’s and a lovely Coffee Shop to relax and unwind afterwards, where the City Players will mingle for a photograph and a coffee. What we are asking is that everyone who joins us takes a sponsorship card and endeavours to raise at least €250.
A donation from all funds raised will go to Helping Hands Homeless Action Group – Cork, a charity that has one of our guides and FORAS Member Derry Desmond as an active volunteer
