Cork Clubs' information evening

26 September 2012

Cork Mountaineering Club invited Mountaineering Ireland's Chief Executive Officer, Karl Boyle to a Club information evening on Tuesday, 25 September 2012.

Cork Mountaineering Club (CMC) extended invitations to other Cork Clubs and seven other clubs were represented including, Bandon Walking Club, Bishopstown Hillwalking Club, Blackrock Hillwalking Club, Cork Backpackers Club, Clonakilty Walking Group, Coconuts Hillwalking Club and Skibbereen Walking Group. The day also provided an opportunity to meet with Cork Youth Climbing Club and, briefly, with UCC Mountaineering Club members.

Karl Boyle delivered a presentation on current Mountaineering Ireland activities and a comprehensive overview of Mountaineering Ireland's insurance schemes, which was a specific request of Cork Mountaineering Club. This led to questions and debate on a series of related factors, including personal responsibility, risk and managing risk, leadership and training opportunities.

Mountaineering Ireland would like to thank Cork Mountaineering Club for planning and hosting such a successful evening.
