Eight Mallard Babies

Fair play to this female Mallard; she has managed to successfully sit and hatch eight eggs and so far safely look after her eight beautiful ducklings. Biggest hazard now for them probably a mink.

A freshly knocked down wood pigeon, converted into pigeon and potato stew. Potatoes from the garden. Washed down with some homemade blueberry gin. Gin aged about a year now, with coffee beans and oak bark.

Discounted One-Day Training Refreshers; For When Things Open Up Again

Before covid struck - you may have been partway through training for Mountain Skills, Rock Climbing, Scrambling, Bushcraft or Kayaking.

Over the past year you potentially had very little practice; or possibly no practice at all. Maybe feeling your skills are back to zero, and you need to start your training courses all over again?

Working off the hope of things opening up a little in April/May (and obviously subject to guidelines at the time); I have scheduled some one-day refresher courses, to get you back in the saddle again, refresh any rusty skills, and hopefully after one-day's training be ready to progress and/or get back outdoors self-sufficiently and off the beaten track.

If you have, for example, completed a Mountain Skills 1 or Bushcraft Skills 1 and are feeling all those skills are forgotten; you will be surprised how much comes flooding back after just one day of refresher training. Plus a simple action plan. Plus some contacts you will make from the refresher course.

Price varies per course (see below), but will be hugely discounted. This is not just for Outdoors Ireland students - anyone can attend.

Dates are mid week and all courses are based in Glengarriff.
