12 O'Clock Hills Recreational & Heritage Project

€2,000 Fundraising Appeal. 
We are the 12 O'clock Hills Recreational & Heritage project in Belvoir East Clare. In existence since 2014 we have developed 5k and 8k Looped walks which include access to Heritage Sites. We have these heritage sites marked with information boards which relate the story of the particular site. Our trails have accreditation from the Irish Sports Council which means we must regularly carry out improvements to maintain this high standard. 

We have been successful with a grant application for Leader funding for further upgrades to this facility. These include further hard coring of the routes and the laying of timber walkways. The purchase and installation of signage to make it easier for people to find us and the purchase and installation of a Display Board at the Belvoir trailhead.

It’s a match funding grant of €21,000 of which we must provide 25% or €6,000 from our own resources. We have €4,000 in funds from a recent 30k hill walk and church gate collections, so we must now raise an additional €2,000 minimum to achieve the match funding criteria. The work is currently nearing competion and then we will celebrate with a walk to showcase the work done and including the launch of a Compass on the hilltop to pinpoint the views

We would be very grateful for a donation to this local Crowd Funding site so that we can achieve our fundraising target thus repaying money borrowed to pay for the upgrades. In appreciation you will be classified as either a Bronze, Silver or Gold subscriber with your name in that particular colour on the new Display Board we have mounting at the Belvoir Trailhead. The donation font colour options are as follows:

Bronze Subscription: €10…..Silver Subscription: €20…..Gold Subscription: €50

When visiting the 12 O'Clock Hills and you have a reasonable fitness level then please consider using our 2nd start point option which is the Snaty Trailhead. It is the very same Red and Blue routes (green access route)but in reverse and fully waymarked. This is because parking at the Belvoir trailhead is now troublesome on the fine week-ends.

Status updated: 17th Jan, 2018

Join us for our Dawn Walk from the Snaty Trailhead and watch the Sun Rise as Winter yields to Spring, and daylight heralds an end to Winter darkness. Celebrate this with a Full Irish Breakfast later in Jacks Place Kilkishen.

We wish to thank all the wonderful people who have supported our recent development work on the hills. Donations during January have been very strong which has now brought us to 104% of plan, so thanks a mill for that. We will close the following link at the end of the month and then place the order for the caps in time for Summer Sun. Please advise if you require a different style or colour ?
