Four seasons in a day

Torc Mountain 2018

The four hour walk as part of Mental Health Week 2018, took the students from the base of the Waterfall at Torc in Killarney to the top of Top Mountain, a 5km climb of 535m (1755ft) in just over 2 hours. Over the 5km we experienced every weather from beautiful sunshine to driving wind and rain at the top. After a quick bite to eat in the shelter from the wind it was back down to the warmth and sunshine. Unfortunately no spectacular views from the top this year, maybe next time…

Ty @ Cappanalea

Here are some photos from the recent end of Transition Year trip to Cappanalea OEC. Over two days the transition participated in Kayaking, Windsurfing, Stand Up paddling and Raft Building. They camped out overnight, plenty of ghost stories were told around the camp fire while roasting marshmallows over the fire.
