12 O'Clock Hills Recreational & Heritage Project

Ongoing Fundraising Appeal 
We are the 12 O'clock Hills Recreational & Heritage project in Belvoir East Clare. In existence since 2014 we have developed 4k 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. 

Because of the ever increasing footfall we must continually maintain the walking trails. This will include ongoing hard coring of the sections of the trails that are suffering from surface erosion. The extension of the boardwalks and additional furniture such as picnic tables and benches will also be a requirement. We are also looking at extending the routes to provide a greater challenge and also the provision of additional parking spaces to cater for our increasing numbers. 

Your donation no matter how small will be much appreciate. All donations received will be logged on our  Display Board at the Belvoir Trailhead

Our 12 Oclocks team of Noel and Antoine working up some sweat on the hills today with getting water to flow. Our expectation is that it will lead to dryer walking surface.

Since 2014 John Torpey as a gesture of goodwill has provided some of his land for use as a car park for walkers. However, since some health and safety issues have arisen, the car park has to be temporarily closed to comply with regulations. John very much regrets this decision. This is effective since Saturday 14th April 2018. Alternative parking is available at our Snaty Trailhead, which is approx. 1km further along the Sixmilebridge to Broadford road from the Belvoir Trailhead. The Red and Blue trails are fully waymarked from there. John has requested that there is to be no parking in the vicinity of the current Belvoir Trailhead Mapboard or Torpey Hurleys.
