Armagh Rambling Club
Cerdded Gogledd Iwerddon
Armagh Rambling Club was launched in The Navan Centre in 1993 by Armagh District Council; its aim is to promote physical activity through walking.
We have three programmes a year.
We have long walks on alternate Saturdays and shorter walks (1.5—2hrs) on alternate Sunday afternoons. The long walks vary from more strenuous/long ones in the mountains (4-5hrs) to more moderate ones (3-4hrs) in forest parks and on country roads.
You will need walking boots/shoes, waterproof jacket and over trousers and warm layers for all the varying weather conditions. A lot of us also use walking poles.
We meet at Armagh Palace gate car park and leave promptly at 9.0am on Saturday and 2.00pm on Sundays. Before the pandemic we shared cars to the start of the walks.
We also have away trips within the island of Ireland on the May and August bank holiday weekends and on alternate years have a walking holiday abroad destination e.g. Austria, Hungary, Spain etc.
We now have over 100 members. A warm welcome awaits anyone who wishes to join and details can be found on the UFRC website or by contacting our secretary by email
