40th Anniversary celebrations

Event Recap – 41st Maamturks Challenge.
April 25, 2016

The 2015 Challenge held on the 18th April marked the 40th Anniversary of the Maamturks Challenge. A special commemorative event was held on the night in Leenane Hotel, a congregation of past and current participants and club members to view the first showing of the documentary about the event produced to mark the occasion.

Many thanks to all those who came along for the night, and indeed to all those who made this special year and all 39 other years possible for everyone.

We are now happy to provide the documentary for you to view at home below:


We are always interested in any photos or memorable stories, old or new you might have about the Maamturks Challenge. If you have anything you would like to share, please email them to us at  maamturks@nuigmc.com.
