Club Membership

In accordance with guidelines  issued by Mountaineering Ireland we regret that we cannot accept any new members for the 2020/ 2021 season.

For those members renewing club membership for the 2020/2021 season the annual subscription currently stands at €50.

Walk dates can be found on below calendar or by sending an inquiry to clareoutdoorclub@gmail.com

Call a walk leader and discuss your interest in joinig the club. Arrive with your filled in form and €60 and we will process your membership.

The membership year stretches from the AGM usually held in mid-September, to October of the following year. The extra month is to allow a breathing space during which re-registration with Mountaineering Ireland can take place. Once a member has fully completed a membership form, available at the bottom of this website (and this is a requirement every year) and paid their annual subscription, the Treasurer sends off the details and fee to Mountaineering Ireland, which then registers the new member for the current year up to October 31st. Once the member is registered and insured, he or she is then entitled to participate in all scheduled club activities.

The club calendar is compiled and circulated to all members either via e-mail. While rock climbing is at its height during the summer months (July to Sept), organised by the designated member in charge of equipment, members are generally left to their own devices and are free to organise mountaineering expeditions with fellow-members at home or abroad. Therefore, as no mountain walking is organised by the committee during the months of July or August, no diary is issued for this period.
