Keep Your Skills Refreshed & Progressing

As an initiative to keep our training course participants on top of their skills we are offering the option of returning to us on the same training course free of charge at a later date.

Skills can become rusty; it can be hard to find partners to get outdoors with; the motivation to progress can be difficult if you feel your current skills aren't at their best...

So for example if you complete a Kayak Skills Course or a Learn To Rock Climb Course with us and a year later feel like you have lost most of those skills, you are welcome to join the same course again free of charge.

There will be some exceptions but we will apply this to as many of our training courses and as many of our clients as possible.

It will be dependant on us having a free place left on a training course for you to join, and may change if a last minute booking comes in.

We didn't catch this fish; just in case the park rangers are reading this blog!

Sea Of Images From The Weekend's Irish Times

Lovely Description About The Burren, By Lenny Antonelli/Robert MacFarlane:

'Each fragment of the Burren is a mausoleum, each hill a necropolis of unthinkable dimensions, containing more dead organisms than there are humans who have ever lived'

Great Description About Achill By Manchan Magan; Which Could Apply To Any Of Our West Coast:

'...wild Atlantic skies that poured celestial colours across the verdant mountains and the lapping waters of Keel Lake. Even the feral sheep blocking the roads seemed less menacing than usual.'

Carrauntoohil Last Saturday

Wet and windy day on Carrauntoohil last Saturday. We actually had great shelter for most of the day as we followed the winding cliff-edge trails. Got a buffeting at the summit; then some spectacular waterfalls on the way home.
