Contact the Brothers of the Lug

Come Join in the Fun!

Congratulations on making it thus far. The Lugs have a long and proud history, and if that history is to continue we need to enlist some new blood. That’s where you come in. If you think you might be interested in joining our merry band, contact the Brothers of the Lug below to let us know.

And, whilst we are definitely looking for recruits – it’s only if you’ve got the right stuff! To that end we’d like to know a little bit about you; why are you interested?, have you been walking long?, how old are you?, that sort of thing. We promise to be in touch as soon as possible, (presuming we remember to check our email!).

The annual donation is €40, which goes towards administrative expenses. This covers all walks, production of our bi-annual walks programme, and includes a nifty members cap. New aspiring Brothers, (or Lowly Asps), will, shortly after joining, be encouraged to contribute a small donation of €10 towards the running costs of the group.
