★Visit to the historical hill of Uisneach★

Delighted to invite all our members to this amazing event on Nov 30th meeting at 12 noon in the visitor centre on the historical hill of Uisneach. This is an event that you should not miss. We are forever grateful to the owners and tour guides of the Hill for allowing us to walk this ancient ground with our hounds.

We will meet at 12 noon for tea and coffee before walking the hill with our tour guide Marty Mulligan, who will relive for us some of the events that took place on this historical site thousands of years ago. On our return to the visitors centre we will have mulled wine and a share all picnic, we ask any members if they would like to contribute to the picnic to bring along a little tray of sandwiches to share on the day. The pit fire will be lit, a sing song and story telling session will take place, if you play a musical instrument please bring it with you.
The hill of Usineach in Co Westmeath has played a part in just about every significant Irish event, be it political, cultural, religious, mythological and geographical. The centre of Ireland in many ways, the enigmatic hill is one of the most sacred and historic sanctuaries in the world.

Pleased be advised that the hill is private property and a working farm with livestock and machinery etc. All hounds must be kept on leads at all times. Children are welcome, it is very important to note that this is a historical site, and we trust you will respect the sacred ground you will walk upon. Keep within and on the pathways allocated for the tour, please refrain from climbing walls and trees that have been present on these lands for thousands of years.
The local press will be there on the day and photos will be published in the local papers, used for Uisneach website and published here on our page and our website, if for any reason you do not wish to be photographed please advise a committee member or the press present on the day.

Don’t forget your doggie bags, clean up after your hound, wear suitable clothing and footwear for the hill walk which will last about 2 hours.

We welcome everyone to this historical walk, and our intention is that we will be invited/welcomed back again in the future.
New members always welcome, we will have membership forms with us on the day for those who would like to join our society. Our merchandise team will have jackets, hoodies and other society merchandise available for sale on the day.

Mark the date, and looking forward to meeting old and new members on the day, if you have any further questions please contact me via the club secretary secretaryiwsoi@gmail.com | 087 6306529 .
