Hi everyone, the John Murray RTE walking club will be coming to north Monaghan next Saturday. The walk starts from the very popular (community owned and run) 14 bedroomed Sliabh Beagh hotel, Knockatallon at 12 noon.
There is already a very successful Knockatallon Ramblers walking club in the area who are coordinating the event, and this walk was also the one chosen for the annual Oireachtas walk last year. Full details of their clubs usual programme is available on http://www.emyvale.net/page183a.html
There's lots of music planned for next Saturday with a visit by many bands including the Monaghan Gospel choir, Big Tom, ceili bands, winner of the UCD Battle of the Bands "The Dominican Affair", McArdle comedy twins, Lisnagrieve pipe band..... and lots more!
There is also a vintage display by Monaghan Veteran and Vintage club, as well as a free barbeque for everyone. It's shaping up to be a super day.
The area has it's own website http://www.knockatallon.com/
The area is near the border with Tyrone and Fermanagh, and has a great community that will make you all very welcome.
