MountainViews Annual Gathering

Date: 21/02/2020
Venue: Lansdowne Hotel, 27 - 29 Pembroke Road, Dublin 4

MountainViews bringing contrasting experiences to its Annual Gathering on Fri 21st Feb

River walking and sea-stacks.   Open to all.

Guest speaker Olivia O'Leary is a journalist, writer and current affairs presenter who will talk about ‘Path of Dreams: the Barrow Way’.

Her talk will be about walking the Barrow towpath between Athy and St Mullins, and the bits of history and flora and fauna along the way.  She will also explain how the campaign to keep the natural grass surface of this 250-year-old path fits in with the recent United Nations call for countries to create corridors of biodiversity.

Based in Donegal, Iain Miller is a rock-climber and mountain Instructor who has made a speciality of climbing the sea stacks scattered around our coasts, and who has written and published extensively.  His talk will focus on the cliffs and sea-stacks of Donegal and contains some awe-inspiring photography. If you have always hankered after climbing a sea stack, Iain is the man to talk to!

There will be an awards ceremony for the people who have completed various lists or have contributed to MountainViews or walking in general. Ruth Whelan of MI and 'Women with Altitude' will be handing over the awards to the women who have become the first to complete certain longer lists.  This year our Best Photography awards have been selected by popular vote.

There will be opportunities to meet other walkers, whether or not members. This meeting is being organised by the MountainViews committee.  Entry fee: €10. 

Time: Fri 21st Feb 2020, 7:30 doors open for start at 8pm.

Venue: Lansdowne Hotel, 27 - 29 Pembroke Road, Dublin 4.
