A view from near John's Hill, Bunclody, Co. Wexford in the sunny south east.

The John Murray's (RTE) walking club came to Bunclody on Sunday February 26th 2012.
See bottom of page for for more info or the right for photos and videos.

Bunclody is the place to be next Sunday (Feb 26th) when local walking group
The Clody Loafers host RTE's John Murray Show for their Spring walk.
John and his team will lead a walk of hundreds up Johns Hill outside
Bunclody where they will interview walkers and celebrities as they go.

The group stop for a break on top of the hill where they will be entertained
by local musicians, story tellers and dancers (and maybe a surprise guest or two!!)
After the walk everyone is invited back to The Carlton Mill Race Hotel for
some refreshments and further entertainment and plenty of ceoil agus craic!!

The RTE Nationwide TV programme are covering the event also and will be
filming the beautiful scenery and talking to people taking part. Both Mary
Kennedy and Anne Cassin will be attending and will be interviewing people as
they walk the trail. Similarly The Sunday Times newspaper are doing
a major spread about the walk as part of their new Irish magazine.

People interested in taking part should get to Bunclody by 11.30 on the day,
follow the signs and instructions from the stewards to the car parks. You
should be prepared for all weathers and wear proper walking boots.
