‘Hills for our Hall’ – Ennis Scouts Fundraiser


Ennis Scouts invite you to dust off your walking boots and join them in exploring their favourite hikes to help raise funds for the new hall development.

Over the next four months Ennis Scouts will guide you on some of their favourite hikes in Co Clare as part of their Winter Walks fundraising series.

There will be a walk on the first Sunday of the month with the first even taking place on October 6th on the Lough Avalla Looped Walk in the Burren. Registration is at 9.30am for a 10.00am start.

This is a magical walk through an old Celtic farm, and sweeping the shores of the little lake called Lough Avalla.

*Please note that you will be on a working farm and that the sheep, goats and cattle graze here.

*Participants are kindly requested to please stay on the official path.

Distance: 6km

Time: 2hr 30mins
