Cancelled - Fairhead Climbing Meet

Date: 01-03/08/2020
Venue: Fairhead
The Dal Riada Climbing Club has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Fairhead Climbing Meet. Please see the update from the club:

"After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Fairhead Meet 2020. This decision has been made after long consideration and consultation with Sean McBride and Mountaineering Ireland over the past two months.

It has been a shame that the meets arranged for this year have so far been cancelled, I'm really looking forward to visiting these places with Dal Riada in 2021. With a bit of luck, we should hopefully be able to get out for a meet later in the summer or in autumn."

The Fairhead Climbing Meet has been rescheduled to take place on the first weekend of August.

From the Dal Riada Climbing Club:

Given the current circumstances regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have made the decision to reschedule the Fairhead Climbing Meet. The new dates for the meet will cover the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of August, pending review of the situation over the coming months.

It’s worth bearing in mind that significant and drastic changes are happening across Ireland and the UK every week in response to this outbreak. While we really hope that the meet does take place, the rapidly changing nature of the current situation makes it impossible to predict whether a gathering such as the Fairhead Meet could go ahead by August.

Please follow the Fairhead Meet 2020 event on Facebook and we’ll keep you in the loop. I hope everyone’s managing to keep positive during this time - all the quality Irish climbing crags will still be there when all of this blows over!
