Our next work day will be Sunday 24th July 2011 in Knockree. We will be working on the Wicklow Way at Knockree repairing a section of trail which is seriously eroded. The work will include the construction of stone steps, log steps, water bars and bench cutting. If you are a regular volunteer we are looking forward to seeing you out again. If you have not come along before then why not give it a try?
Please meet at 10.30am. Come prepared for a day in the hills, be prepared for all weathers, wear appropriate footwear. A pack lunch is advisable including a hot drink. A change of clothes is recommended for the homeward journey. Mountain Meitheal will provide the tools and gloves. Why not bring a friend - new comers are always welcome!
You can also help out by forwarding a link to this webpage to any of your friends that you think might be interested in supporting Mountain Meitheal! The first step is easy - just turn up! We are always delighted to meet new volunteers.
