Diabetes Cliffs of Moher Walk – Sth West
October 16, 2016
Our Diabetes Group Walk is from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher.
Meeting @ O’Connor’s pub carpark in Doolin for an 11am start.
Date: Sunday 16th October @11am.
The branch priced a bus to transport the group back from the Cliffs but it was very expensive so they decided one car will be parked at the Cliffs before the walk and that driver will transport the other drivers back to their cars.
Distance involved is 8km so will take approximately 2 hrs-2 hrs 30. Please ensure you wear comfortable footwear, warm & waterproof clothing and have fluids and snacks. Children will also need to be well supervised during the walk as there are a few cliff edges.
The walk will go ahead weather permitting so if interested and you haven’t already let me know please do so as soon as possible and also give me your mobile number in case there are any changes on the day. The Cliff Path Safety Code is below.

Cliff Path Safety Code
1. Keep to the official path, away from cliff edges and overhangs.
2. Always supervise children, especially near cliff edges.
3. Be aware that weather conditions can change suddenly. Strong onshore wind can suddenly change to off-shore as the wind eddies on the higher sections of the cliff. Heavy fog is common and results in extremely poor visibility.
4. Apply the principles of Leave No Trace and The Burren Code by being well prepared for your walk, following trail notices, taking home your rubbish and minimizing your impact on the environment. This walking trail has been developed with kind assistance of local landowners and organisations. Please respect these landowners, their fencing, and their livestock, by parking in designated areas only, and staying on the official trail. No dogs allowed.
