Club Details


The Gap o’ the North Hill Walking Club was created in January 2011 and is based in the pub of the same name in the village of Jonesborough in South Armagh (M1/A1 Junction 20).

We are a walking club with members from the Mourne, Cooley and Gullion area. We walk every second Sunday starting from the Gap o’ the North pub in Jonesborough at 10am. There is a strong local focus on the Cooleys and the Ring of Gullion with occasional trips to the Mournes and further afield.

As far as possible we try to combine each walk with some local knowledge of history or archaeological sites and interpretation of landscape to show farming and community development over the centuries.
