    Saturday Run

    Run will start from outside the hotel at 10.00 sharp & we'll be using the 'drop-off system' to ensure nobody gets lost
    If you need fuel, available in the village, please fill up beforehand as the run will be leaving in the opposite direction


    There'll (naturally ) be a morning & afternoon tea / comfort stop. Lunch stop is the Connemara Lake Hotel (14.00 or shortly afterwards) in the middle of Oughterard if anyone wants to drop by.

    This year's Saturday Run is about 75% new so don't be saying 'been there, done that'
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    Guys,

    Thanks to JR, James and Mary and all concerned for a great weekend!

    The ride-out yesterday was a pleasure, the hotel looked after us well and my spin back home via Galway and the Slieve Blooms was delightful!

    Photos at this link - mostly scenery: https://goo.gl/photos/tHiK4LbmCBuYG548A

    All we need now is to know why "the Irish name for Maam Cross is "An Teach Doite"or "The Burnt House"

    Best wishes to all,

    Bin

    Maam Cross, or as the Irish signs display 'An Teach Doite'- the burned house (a reference to the Bogman's Ball event where steaks were cooked on shovels and fire was often the result!).

    The word Maam is derived from the Gaelic word “MÁM” meaning mountain pass.
