Exclusive – View Co Tipperary’s First Indoor Climbing Wall.

New Climbing Wall To Be Finally Revealed In Upperchurch

Work on the secretive installation of a new Climbing Wall, currently being erected in Upperchurch village near Thurles here in Co Tipperary, is almost finally complete after a number of extremely busy months.

Unlike Angela Merkel’s telephone and despite the best efforts by the US National Security Agency (NSA) to monitor this same Upperchurch activity, this latest attraction here in Co Tipperary has managed to remain a closely guarded secret.

Thurles.Info’s Undercover Agent paid a brief visit to this project, under the cover of darkness last night, managing to sneak past the numerous armed guards and several snarling, lunging, foreboding Rottweiler and Doberman Pinscher guard dogs, to take us back exclusive pictures of this truly ‘state of the art,’ secret visitor attraction, now featured hereunder for the very first time.

Upperchurch, Thurles, Tipperary – New Climbing Wall Revealed – Have You Got Nerves Of Steel?

We can also report that this brand new facility will be unveiled to the public during the Upperchurch Walking Festival, latter most enjoyable of events taking place next week (Beginning 8th, 9th & 10th November) and all are invited to come, observe and experience at first hand, as climbers from mid Tipperary Hill Walkers demonstrate what can be achieved in safety on this wall, which our undercover agent reports is akin to “The North Face of the Eiger.”  (Well after all the area is not called UPPER church for no reason.)

Upperchurch Walking Weekend

Of course the 8th annual Upperchurch Walking Weekend also takes place on the 8th, 9th and 10th of November this year, with a choice of over a dozen different walks all ranging from 7kms to 18kms.

In addition to both these walking and climbing experiences, outdoor enthusiasts can observe a Bush-Craft display which will demonstrate and explain wilderness survival skills such as shelter erection, fire creation, water filtration, cooking wild food, wood carving and rope making from natural materials.

The local cycling club are also running three organised cycles over 25kms, 50kms and 75kms starting at noon on Sunday.

Looks like Upperchurch village, Thurles, Co Tipperary will be the only place to be for all those who like to “live a little on the wild side,” in early November this year. So do head for the Upperchurch Hills the weekend after next, not only for the walking, but also for the healthy atmosphere, the beauty and the freedom that abounds.  Also experience the warmth and friendliness of the local people you will meet should you stop off in the village for any type of food or beverage.
