Mountaineering Ireland had a shared stand with Get Ireland Walking at the Active Over 50s Show in the RDS last weekend (October 9th - 11th). It was great to see so much enthusiasm and interest in our sport and also in opportunities to improve skills and get involved with local clubs. The combined stand showcased the pathway from local community based walking schemes through to trail walking and then up into the hills and mountains. The show provided a valuable opportunity to engage with a great range of people from lapsed hillwalkers to those wanting to get involved with climbing for the first time!

A special thanks to all the volunteers who helped out on the stand on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Their first hand knowledge and enthusiasm was a great addition to the three days.
