An Taisce - Boyne canal walk

May 13th 2012 from 16:00 - 19:00

An Taisce’s second guided walk will take place on the Oldbridge section of the Boyne, starting at Oldbridge House at 4:00pm on Sunday May 13th. The start time had to be delayed as it clashed with another event at Oldbridge. This walk will start from Oldbridge house, going past the newly constructed sea lock at Oldbridge to Glenmore and return to Oldbridge House, a round trip of about 3 miles. The walk will be lead by Camilla Keane and John Ducie of An Taisce. Attendance is free but if you are interested in please email Camilla so that we have an idea of numbers. (It was intended to provide a bus from Drogheda train station however, this is proving too costly. If you need transport from the train station email Camilla to sort out the details).
