The First PGS Sport’s Event – A Hike!
Last Saturday, eight DCU Postgraduate Society members set out on a hike from Bray to Greystones, Co. Wicklow. After arriving by DART to Bray, they made their way towards the bottom of Bray Head to begin the hike. The popular Bray Head climb was the beginning of their 3-hour hike towards Greystones.
The climb although, short in distance can be quite steep in parts, but the group managed to stick together and continue their journey up to the peak of Bray Head. Not without taking a brief group photograph though!
Finally, the group made their final approach towards conquering the top of Bray Head climb, to enjoy the spectacular views of both Bray town and the coastline.
While the rest of the group enjoyed the views and had a quick rest before continuing the hike to Greystones, others decided to have some fun. Such as Gwen, our PGS Sports Officer, doing a headstand in front of the amazing coastline views.
Once everyone was rested, and Gwen had finished showing off, they continued their way down the hill to start the cliff walk running from Bray to Greystones. The cliff walk was approximately 6.5km long, with views of the coastline the entire length.
The group finished the walk in a little over an hour and a half, then heading up towards Greystones main street, where there were numerous restaurants, cafes and pubs to relax after the hike. They chose to visit the popular Happy Pear café for food, and coffee before heading to Mrs Robinson’s Bar. Then returning to City Centre via DART.
All in all, this was a wonderful day out for the group and for bringing Postgrads together, it was a brilliant start to our sporting activities.
