** MINCE PIE RUN - Sun 30th December **

Post by Tony Cooney » Tue Dec 04, 2012 2:00 pm

MINCE PIE RUN

Image => Santa's heading off to collect the mulled wine & mince pies!!!!!

Date: Sunday 30th December 2012.

Meeting Point: Blessington - Market Square beside the Ulster Bank (on the right after Topaz Filling Station if approaching from the Dublin side of the town.)
Blessington is located only 15 miles south west of the M50 along the N81.

Time: Meet at 11:30 for a midday departure.

Finishing Point: Donadea Forrest Park. Click on link for info: http://www.discoverireland.ie/Arts-Cult ... park/14153

To shake down the excesses of Christmas, we've organised a short themed run which will take us no more than 90 minutes along the back roads of Wicklow/Kildare.
On arrival at Donadea Forrest Park, we will have mince pies & mulled wine (non alcoholic!)

Feel free to bring your own sambos & flasks as there are outdoor picnic tables close to the car park.
There is also a log cabin coffee shop (soup/sambos/cakes etc) with an outdoor wood burning fire & adjoining toilets.

Image

Donadea Forrest Park is ideally located close to the N7 & N4, so with the long winter evenings, we plan to have everyone home in daylight.

For further details contact me (Tony) on 085-712 0727 or Martin Murphy on 087-697 7407.

To get an indication of numbers (for Martin to bake the mince pies!!) please add your name to the list below if you'll be coming along:
1. Tony
2. Martin Murphy
3.

No probs Macker.

Took a spin out to Donadea today where there was a very festive atmosphere with Santa in his grotto, the elves helping in the log cabin cafe with nice Xmas music playing on the outdoor speakers while we had our soup outside beside the fire :)

As well as bringing the tea and sambos, bring €5 in coins for entry to the park (barrier) and maybe your wellies/old shoes if you want to go walking in the wooded areas.

Great run out for the car today, 240 miles in total, lucky it wasn't the economy run or I was in trouble, half a tank in 40 miles, don't know how the car didn't go afire. Thanks to Martin and Darran for the route, the main think I hope is that your dad is ok tony.
