Sun Sept 5 2021 – Mid-Tipp Hillwalkers had two groups in the hills.

“A” Walk
The A walk was led by Denise Laffan, starting at Boulakennedy and heading up to Greenane in very foggy and wet conditions. The group then headed onto Farbreaga and after that descended by the Old Shooting House and then back to cars.

“C” Walk
A group of twenty-six led by Eddie Morrissey started the C Walk near the Galtee Waterworks. The group trekked along the base of Knockastackeen before following Kennedy’s stream uphill through the Boola Glen. As the mist descended, the group reached Borheen Lough where they enjoyed a well-deserved lunch break. After lunch the group walked along the lakeshore before completing a steep climb followed by the outward journey home along the base of Cush. The fog cleared on the homeward trek giving glimpses of the three peaks which give Knockastackeen the alternative name of Three Rocks Hill. The group, which consisted of some new hillwakers, some hillwalkers completing their first C Walk and a core of experienced hillwalkers had a most enjoyable day out on the hills.

Next Sun 12 Sept 2021 the A walk will leave Cashel at 930am and the B walk will leave at 10am – contact Denise at 087 9253049 to book in.

Please note that for The Sunday Ramble on Sept 12th 2021 – the group are meeting in Cashel at Ladyswell at 10.15am. If you are interested, please contact Brid at 086 8071753.
