From East Wicklow to East Africa!

Inveterate explorer, Gav Maguire,  is at it again: he is deep into preparations with a group of select Conlethian students and the expedition company Earth’s Edge getting ready for a trip next summer to East Africa.  Over the summer the gang have been walking up and down the hills of the Dublin and Wicklow Coast in preparation for the slightly higher (and drier) topography of East Africa.

 

 

The planning started as soon as Gav landed back from India last summer (their last destination) and the students have been busy all year working to raise funds for the trip.  And over the last few weeks Gav has led the group from Bray to Greystones (and Greystones to Bray) and to the top of Howth Head.  Check out the pics above and below from these hikes and stay tuned for more information of the latest chapter in a now long-established Conlethian tradition of partcipation in exploration and develomemet around the world.
